|As far as the laws of mathematics
refer to reality, they are not certain, and as far as they are certain,
they do not refer to reality.... The
most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mystical. It is the
power of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To
know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself
as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties
can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this
feeling, is at the center of true religiousness. In this sense, and in
this sense only, I belong to the rank of devoutly religious men....
The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe....
A human being is part of a whole, called by us the "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
|NADA is dedicated to the integration
of transformational art, photography and music into everyday life, and
also specializes in photography taken expressly for planetarium use. On-location
Panoramas and All-Skies are photographed to technical standards which assure
maximum ease in their application.
This small catalogue lists All-Skies and Panoramas currently on file. The catalogue of art images (paintings, stained glass (rose windows and lancets), tapestries, sculpture, architecture, etc.) is too large to print conveniently. Some of the categories include images from cultures such as the Classical Greek and Roman, Middle Eastern, Egyptian, Far Eastern, Medieval European, Native North American, Meso-American, African and a large selection of spectacular natural environments, flora and fauna. Every year there are new projects and the list is constantly expanding. Please inquire about the specific subjects that you require. We also enthusiastically work with producers who need photography that has not yet been taken.
* NADA Now Offers Affordable Professional High Resolution 35mm Digital Scanning For Slides And Negatives. Please Call For A New Price List.

All-Skies have been photographed using a 17mm wide-angle lens tilted at 30-45 degrees to perpendicular, except where special distortion factors require different angular adjustments.
LOWELL OBSERVATORY - the venerable interior
of the observatory
Due to difficulties in certain terrains, it was possible to photograph only a 180 degree section of the view. The three images have been reversed to complete the six-part All-Sky.
CHION'IN TEMPLE, KYOTO - purity, power
and presence penetrate into one in this awe inspiring space
These creations require the use of several systems, such as panorama, all-sky and zenith projectors. A detailed description of a suggested projector arrangement is included with each slide package.
ROSE OF ROSES - This is the most beautiful
collection of stained glass windows in the world! The great rose windows
from the cathedrals of Chartres, Notre Dame de Paris, Laon, Clermont-Ferrand,
Lyon, Amiens, Reims and Lincoln are combined into a breathtaking new work
of art. Only in a planetarium dome can these 13 masterpieces be viewed
as a single integrated unity. (A slide of this color balanced arrangement
is available on request.)....$130.00
