At the forefront of 360 immersion technologies

With its dome 13 meters high, its 8 video projectors and its 157 loudspeakers, the Satosphere places the public at the heart of the audiovisual experience.

The SAT inaugurated the Satosphere in 2011. It is the first immersive theater dedicated to artistic creation and visualization activities. The Satosphere forms a spherical projection screen where artists explore new conceptual and sensory territories.

2022 edition

2022 award winners

In 2022, the SAT's major event for immersive creation presented 7 award-winning films, which were selected by a jury of immersive artists and specialists as well as a public vote.

The program includes an urban exploration of a surreal labyrinth (Labyrinth); a colorful low-poly bird’s eye view flight over Europe (Swarm); an oneiric contemplative respite (Jacinthe.xyz); a psychedelic visual study of the world of economics (Introduction à l’économétrie); A spiral down the world of memory and dementia (Grandma’s House); A genetic love affair with a stop-motion flair (The Orchid and the Bee); and a fictitious analysis of our Earth through the eyes of an outer-space entity (Astro).
