Are you a fan of the Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, or Burning Man? Do you love interactive and experimental artwork? If so, then Wonderspaces is the perfect attraction for you! Currently in San Diego, this pop-up exhibition of experiential artworks partners with 16 artists from around the world and includes pieces featured at the world’s biggest festivals and fairs.
Jason Shin and Patrick Charles, two former marines, had a mutual dream of creating short-term interactive art experiences that would provide an immersive, breathtaking experience. They spent the past year creating an event that’s accessible, family-friendly, and appealing to a wide audience, and now they’re ready to share their vision with the world. With a full snack bar and plenty of beer and wine, you can stay and embrace this one-of-a-kind traveling event for as long as you want!
Check out a few of the unique exhibits featured in Wonderspaces!
Immerse Yourself in Room-sized Installations
For a truly captivating experience, walk around Wonderspaces’ extravagant, room-sized exhibits. Check out Karina Smigla-Bobinksi’s piece, ADA, which utilizes a helium-filled globe that’s spiked with charcoals, drawing on the walls as it floats freely around the room. Or take a look at Adam Belt’s A Religious Experience. The night sky and humbling array of stars and galaxies will incite allusions to the infinite and the sacred.
Personalize your Experience with Interactive Exhibits
Leave your mark on interactive art pieces, like Illegal Art’s The Last Word, which provides a private moment to recapture what was never uttered. Participants are encouraged to remove one of the hundreds of tightly rolled pieces of paper, to either read how other people’s conversations might have ended, or add their own unfinished business for others to read. Join a global collaborative experiment by playing a piano in Matthew Matthew’s On a Human Scale. Everyday New Yorkers were videotaped singing, and each key on the piano plays a different video, which creates an immersive audiovisual experience that fuses together music, film, people, and technology.
Travel to New Worlds with Virtual Reality
Take a break from reality for a few minutes with Titmouse’s interactive VR music video, Show It 2 Me, which was created using Tilt Brush’s audio reactive brushes and features Night Club’s Single by the same name. Don an HTC Vive headset and go on a trippy visual ride that features demonic cars, pulsating brains, and disembodied tongue-mouths. Then enjoy Philipp Maas’ VR short film, Sonar, which was selected by international festivals, including Sundance and Cannes.
