Diana Reichenbach is an award-winning multimedia artist specializing in immersive and architectural media. She creates immersive experiences inspired by personal, introspective moments that have challenged her perception. Her work breaks the traditional frame of filmmaking and explores 360 degree space through fulldome filmmaking, architectural installation, projection mapping, and interactive experiments.
Reichenbach is a recipient of the 2017 Bowen Award for excellence in research, the 2014 ‘Best Use of Dome’ award at Fulldome UK, a 2013 ’Science, Art and Culture” award from the 1st Russian Fulldome Festival, and was a 2009 Student Academy Awards regional finalist. She has served on juries for the Denver Film Festival, academy-qualifying RiverRun Film Festival, and the Cannonball Miami Wavemaker Grant program.
Reichenbach’s work has notably been exhibited at the Virgin Airways clubhouse at LAX, Light City Baltimore Festival of Lights, HUBweek: A Festival for the Future, the Director’s Guild in Los Angeles, Burning Man Festival, Bonnaroo: Pageant of the Cosmos presented by Adult Swim, RiverRun Film Festival, Punta Y Raya Festival, and Anima Mundi.
Select presentations include the 2015 Designing for Domes Symposium in Singapore, the 2014 Fulldome Festival in Jena, Germany, and the 2013 Society for Animation Studies conference in Los Angeles. Notable published works include a chapter entitled Losing Time and Space: Experiencing Immersion, part of the cross-disciplinary Springer-published text Space, Time and the Limits of Human Understanding, including authors such as Noam Chomsky.
She earned her BA in Anthropology and BS in Telecommunications from the University of Florida and her MFA in Animation and Digital Arts from the University of Southern California. In addition to current independent and professional projects, she is a Professor of Animation at Savannah College of Art and Design.
