Van Gogh - Inspiration of the month
Inspiration of the month, this is where we talk about artists, designers and creatives who we find inspirational.
This month we look at the world renowned Vincent Van Gogh, which only felt fitting after spending our Saturday at the incredible van Gogh immersive experience.
I can confirm it is not to be missed. You are able to see his work like never before through 20,000 square foot light and sound spectacular featuring two-story projections of the Van Gogh’s most compelling works. Encounter the brilliance in 360.
There is not much I need to say about Van Gogh, he's so well known that instead I am going to talk about the immersive experience and how it changes and helps you re-look at his work.
As soon as you enter the experience you are met with the sunflowers but not in the exact way you will remember them.
Not only are you moving through the different levels and rooms but all the imagery moves and changes continuously too. It really puts an emphasis on the movement that Van Gogh creates through his brush strokes. The paintings are also blown up allowing you to appreciate the amount of detail and work that must have gone into theses pieces.
I did pay the extra £5 to be able to do the VR experience 10/10 recommend. Not only because you get to go through seeing a more 'behind the scenes' but you get information throughout the experience ( which for me personally find it easier to listen rather than read information).
Not to forget you just get to actually try out VR its pretty cool.
