The new exhibit, Cloud City, will challenge your perception!
Let’s talk light…
Upon entering Cloud City, visitors will see a scene of clouds projected across the entire space. Here’s where we begin to tamper with your sense of wonder and perspective:
- LIGHT- The cloud projections will be cast from opposite corners of the exhibit space. Here’s the twist (and the key element behind this design choice): each looping projection will be played at different speeds. So, while you view one projection whizzing through clouds, the other will be soaring in slower motion right next to it. Talk about enhancing how your mind registers speed and perception!
- DEPTH– Each projection screen will be situated at different depths within the space, allowing YOU to go behind or in front of their figurations. Why? Well, we’d like you to meet shadows (perhaps even your own) in ways you’ve never met them before!
- SENSORY PLAY– As you take in the sights, hide behind cloud-like structures and find little components we’ve strategically placed for you to further explore the power of light. But you’ll need to discover each of these when you visit! …okay okay, we’ll tell you:
- Interactive mirror wall;
- Large magnifying lens;
- Convex bubble mirrors;
- Blacklight and glow-in-the-dark painting;
- And a slap-organ!
We’re so excited about the progress being made and can’t wait to welcome Museum & Theatre members and visitors to Cloud City for play and learning! Remember, as a member, you’re invited to this exciting exhibit opening party as a benefit of your Museum & Theatre membership!
Til’ next time!
