Not only is this the world’s first fully immersive entertainment art park, but the massive location also includes five fully immersive, 360-degree domes outfitted with 10.1 surround sound to create a shared VR experience that combines the future of art, entertainment, and technology.
Presented by Wisdome Los Angeles, the space can hold up to 1,000 people both inside and around the domes. Of the five domes, two of them include 360-degree projection mapping technology and the diameter of the largest dome is 90 feet and can fit up to 500 people.

Entangled Realities – Living with Artificial Intelligence at HeK (Basel, Switzerland)

May 9, 2019 – August 11, 2019

HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel) in Basel, Switzerland is pleased to present Entangled Realities, an international group exhibition focusing on artificial intelligence and its effects on human lives and society. Our daily interactions with intelligent algorithmic systems and the power we already cede to machines in many areas of our lives have given rise to new interwoven realities. Entangled Realities turns its lens on AI as a new creative tool that opens up diverse and unexpected imagery, artifacts, and sound. The featured artwork will show how algorithmic networks “see” the world but also create the world, giving us an insight into machine learning, based on neural networks, while also deepening our understanding of non-human cognition and subjectivity. 

Artists include Zach Blas and Jemima Wyman (US), James Bridle (GB), Ursula Damm (DE), Dries Depoorter (BE), Anna Dumitriu and Alex May (GB), fabric | ch (CH), Holly Herndon and Mat Dryhurst (US/GB), Mario Klingemann (DE), Lauren McCarthy (US), Trevor Paglen (US), Anna Ridler and David Pfau (GB), Sebastian Schmieg (DE), Jenna Sutela (FI), and more.

The show will be on view during the 2019 Art Basel.

Matthew Rosier’s 108 Steps (Macclesfield, England)

October 26-28, 2018

Matthew Rosier's 108 Steps from FutureEverything on Vimeo.

The 108 Steps, a winding stairway between the Macclesfield station and the town centre, are a beloved local landmark for Maxonians.

Over three nights in October, passersby can see the Steps brought to life by artist Matthew Rosier who has captured ‘a week in the life’ on film, to create a wistful and atmospheric projection-mapped installation.

Earlier this year, Matthew Rosier visited Macclesfield to capture the daily life of the town’s iconic steps. Filmed footage of local runners, commuters, dog walkers – and everyone in between – has been composed into a loop of memories, which will be projected onto the face of the steps (and people using them). The work creates interplay between past and present, bringing to life the Steps’ historic connection to people and place.

Believed to date from 1696 when the local newspaper nicknamed the cobbled climb ‘The Steps’, no one knows exactly when they were created.

This innovative artist residency program challenges artists and audiences to rethink their ideas of interactive museum experiences in one of the toughest venues – a children’s museum.

Tough Art 2018 Artists are:

Isaac Levine, Lake Light
Lake Light is a kinetic sculpture that uses LED lights and ping pong balls propelled back and forth by fans to simulate the lights and sounds of moonlight bouncing on lake water. See new things in repetitive patterns!

Miranda Miller and Lumi Barron, Light Showers
Inspired by the joy of finding rainbows in the spray from a garden hose, Light Showers encourages visitors to create their own mist fall and discover the hidden rainbows that float within it.

Neil Mendoza, Mechanical Masterpieces
Mechanical Masterpieces is a gallery of classical art reimagined for the 21st century. Viewers can poke, switch, disco, inflate and water paintings to their heart’s content.

Sweeper’s Clock by Maarten Baas at The Exploratorium (San Francisco, California)

Maarten Baas combines theater, art, film, and design in Sweeper’s Clock to make a 12-hour-long movie in which two performers replicate an analog clock by sweeping two piles of garbage (one for the hour hand, one for the minute hand) to indicate the time.

Eric Staller’s SpiroGyrate in Terminal 3 at San Francisco Airport (SFO)

Commissioned by the San Francisco Arts Commission, SpiroGyrate is an interactive children’s play area in Terminal 3 of San Francisco International Airport.

Twelve 56″ (142 cm) spirals mesh and seemingly propel one another like so many gears, in an installation that begins on the floor and moves up the wall. Each of these spirals is laser-cut acrylic and each of them is motorized to move clockwise and counter-clockwise in a slow and hypnotic fashion. The piece is interactive, beginning with the viewer’s ability to walk and stand on the spirals, which are under heavy glass plates. Motion sensors respond to people walking over the glass circles and activate color changes in the back-lit spirals.

“Kinetic Rain” Sculpture at Changi Airport Singapore

The world’s largest kinetic sculpture is in the Departure-Check-in Hall of Terminal 1 at Singapore Airport.

“Kinetic Rain” Changi Airport Singapore from ART+COM on Vimeo.

In the course of refurbishment works ART+COM was commissioned to create a signature art installation for the Departure-Check-in hall of Terminal 1 at Singapore Airport. “Kinetic Rain” is composed of two parts, each consisting of 608 rain droplets made of lightweight aluminum covered with copper. Suspended from thin steel ropes above the two opposing escalators, each droplet is moved precisely and seemingly floating by a computer-controlled motor hidden in the halls ceiling. The drops follow a 15-minute, computationally designed choreography where the two parts move together in unison, sometimes mirroring, sometimes complementing, and sometimes responding to each other.
