The Big Bang Gala is a fundraising event that supports the California Academy of Sciences’ research and education initiatives, aimed at exploring, explaining, and protecting the natural world. When the Academy hosted its 25th annual gala, Obscura provided a rich visualization of nature’s wonders.

The event premiered with Obscura’s projections of the natural world in a fluid, shifting collage. Attendees were astonished by magnificent butterflies, underwater creatures, and other animals in a dazzling cinematic show.

The experience took them to the far reaches of the cosmos and back to earth and the inhabitants of land, sea, and air.
