I had a delightful visit from my Left Coast brother and sister-in-law this week, which included another trip to ARTECHOUSE, to
see touch experience the current “New Nature” installation.
I’ve never been able to come close to capturing the HD quality of ARTECHOUSE’s visual displays with my IPad, but I’ve found some online samples from the shows.
In “New Nature”, a side room contains “The Menagerie”, a collection of large monitors displaying fluid abstract designs. The “creatures” on screen respond to the hand movements of the person watching the monitor.
Here’s an overview of the current installation. The main room, at the start of the video, is 24 feet high*, and the installation covers 270°.
Love this place! ARTECHOUSE has become one of my favourite hangouts in Washington.
*To put that in perspective, imagine four six-foot-tall people, standing on each other’s heads. Or imagine six four-foot-tall people, standing on each other’s heads, if that works better for you. The point is, it’s big.
