OMMATIDIUM

Ommatidium is the creation of R. Beau Lotto and industrial designer Samuel Wilkinson.

Reflecting the Lab of Misfits' focus on perception, the unusual name is based the units that make up the compound eyes of many insects, liking photoreceptors in the arthropod eye to the installation's own canopy design.

WHYY

People have long tried their hand at creating their own worlds, and on this episode, we explore why we do this, and what happens next. We hear stories about nature conservation gone wrong, the therapeutic potential of VR, and talk to a neuroscientist who says all of us are trapped inside a world of our own making.
