A pop-up art exhibit has debuted in San Diego, promising guests an extraordinary experience. It’s called Wonderspaces and features interactive art that people can touch and help transform.
To help viewers at home interact with the art, we’ve created a 360 video experience. Use your mouse to navigate the video clips in all directions.
Sixteen exhibits from artists around the country are featured at Wonderspaces. Many of the art experiences have been featured at special events like Burning Man, SXSW, Coachella and the Sundance Film Festival.
Co-founders of the startup wanted to put all the exhibits under one roof so communities could experience them.
“We think it’s an old school traveling circus. Where we set up this beautiful arts, tear it down and move on to the next city,” said Patrick Charles, one of the co-founders. “We want you to have a shared extraordinary experience where you come to our space with a friend, family, loved ones and have a different night out.”
One exhibit features a helium-filled globe spike with charcoals. It floats freely in a room, drawing on the walls.
Another exhibit called Sweet Spot is a color installation of 3,700 thin multicolor nylon cords hanging from the ceiling. Handmade by volunteers in Indianapolis, there’s a total of 19 miles of cord in the piece.
Charles and his co-founder are Marine Corps veterans and he says their background comes in handy every day, from project planning to operations of the employees.
Wonderspaces will travel to other cities including Austin, Phoenix and Denver.
Wonderspaces will be in San Diego until August 27, you can buy tickets online at www.wonderspaces.com.
