A Virtual Terrarium

A colorful digital menagerie of nature-inspired creatures and plant life.

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.

Parallel Universe

The final days of the Parallel Universe exhibition at ARTECHOUSE.

With only a few days left, Parallel Universe is an extraordinary experience that you can immerse yourself into at ARTECHOUSE. If you love the Netflix show Black Mirror, you’ll find yourself comparing imagery at this exhibition. Projections cover the floor-to-ceiling walls so that museum visitors can lounge on bean bags while watching abstract shapes swirl around the area. Take a look at my video to see my personal experience and be sure to check back for the Cherry Blossom Dream Sakura Yume coverage.

ARTECHOUSE

A new gallery in DC opens to the public just in time for the summer rush.

The combination of digital technology and artistic talent created a beautiful exhibition featured at ARTECHOUSE, a new gallery making waves in Washington DC. I explored the venue opening day with much excitement. It’s certainly an experience that Instagrammers will fall in love with. The timing couldn’t be more perfect with the end of Yayoi Kusama‘s exhibition at the Hirshhorn, locals¬†will be heading straight here.
