To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Graphics, Visualization and Usability (GVU) Center at Georgia Tech, several large-scale interactive artworks will be presented, including Ascent.

Ascent is meant to evoke the spectacle of World’s Fairs’ hot-air balloon flights, as well as reflect the dynamic nature of current innovative research in the GVU Center, all with a spirit of fun and adventure. A cluster of weather balloons tethered above the Technology Square Research Building (TSRB) is outfitted with a bundle of video cameras moving up and down the balloon line, capturing a 360-degree video panorama of Midtown Atlanta. The video panorama of the city is displayed inside a single elevator in TSRB.
