How do we perceive light? Immersing viewers in a 360-degree view of the cosmos, Beyond the Light at New York’s ARTECHOUSE meshes artistic expression, technology, and scientific discoveries to explore how light travels through space and time. The cinematic experience utilizes cavernous architecture and screens featuring the highest resolution currently available to present a collaboration with NASA, artistically rendering data captured by the James Webb Space Telescope into radiant, psychedelic visuals.
ARTECHOUSE saw the potential to use state-of-the-art equipment to portray galactic phenomena that is typically invisible to the naked eye. “We believe that art, science, and technology can come together to offer a fascinating experience, and this exhibition is a perfect example of the convergence of these worlds,” says co-founder Sandro Kereselidze. “Conceptualized through many in-person and virtual sessions with NASA’s team of scientists and specialists, this exhibition takes science and data that already exists and brings it to life artistically in a way that’s never been done before.”
Beyond the Light continues in New York City through the summer and will open at ARTECHOUSE’s Washington, D.C., location in the fall. Find more on its website.
