One of my favorite places in the city remains to be ARTECHOUSE. I recently explored the latest exhibit: New Nature by Marpi. Visitors step into a virtual terrarium to play with artworks responsive to sensory movement.
I wondered to myself if this is the future of living entities. The reality is though is that it’s a new way to experience art that never existed before. Exhibitions similar to this allows children to see what the mergence of technology and art can do to create a journey into another reality. I was mesmerized by the bamboo-looking artwork flying around me throughout the room. I ran back and forth across a hall that gave the impression it moved upon my touch. However, if you take away the projectors, you’re left with a bare room. You can imagine the artificial intelligence and creativity that went into what seems like a simple interaction.
Watch my experience interacting with this digital playground. To learn more, visit ARTECHOUSE’s website. The exhibition runs now through January 13, 2019.
