Panorama Expands “THE LAB” With An All-New Collection Of Immersive Art And Dynamic Technology

first_imgThis July, Panorama will return to New York City for a second year with performances from Nine Inch Nails, Frank Ocean, Tame Impala, A Tribe Called Quest, alt-J, Solange, Justice, Nick Murphy, MGMT and more. Part of what makes the music festival so engaging is its massive dedication to art installations.Panorama returns this summer with an all-new lineup of artistry and even more innovation at THE LAB, powered by HP. Building on the success of last year’s debut, THE LAB’s museum-quality exhibition space has been expanded to include additional interactive, experiential digital art installations, fusing technology, art, performance and design at the center of Panorama. Curated exclusively by New York City-based artists, THE LAB puts the city’s unparalleled creativity and innovation on display for a sensory adventure culminating in a massive 360 degree dome theater.HP is once again on board as the official technology sponsor for Panorama and will be setting up in THE LAB, working with digital artists and HP Z Workstations to build out the full scale experience for festival goers.At the heart of THE LAB is The Exhibition, a showcase of New York City’s local talent and innovation with a series of dynamic and immersive art installations driven by technology. Artists designing installations include Prism, SOFTlab, FutureWife, Ekene Ijeoma, Emilie Baltz, and The Windmill Factory. THE LAB is curated by META.IS.Artist Installations included at The Exhibition at THE LAB Future Portrait created by PrismFuture Portrait transforms motion into an amazing dynamic film. Your performance drives uniquely beautiful animation that can be remixed and shared on the fly. Discover a new you defined by movement.Volume created by SOFTlabAn interactive cube of responsive mirrors that redirect light and sound as a volume that reflects the excitement of surrounding festival goers. Volume uses mirrors, light, and sound as fundamental building elements to remix the character of the festival goers and gaze back at them with empathy and exuberance.Boolean Planet created by Future WifeA monolithic sphere beckons nearby entities to form gravity wells with the weight of their bodies, slicing through celestial veils to reveal the unseen worlds beneath the surface.Heartfelt created by Ekene IjeomaHeartfelt is a participatory interactive installation which engages participants in holding hands and letting electricity flow through them to turn on lights and play sounds. It uses participants’ bodies as conductors to close the circuit of socio-political polarization, creating a shared experience of solitary and interconnectivity.Dream Machine created by Unicorns ExistThe Dream Machine is a multi-player, olfactory organ performance that combines smell with sound, touch and light in a single interactive experience.Right Passage created by The Windmill FactoryRight Passage is a room scale sound and light performance installation.  You begin in a massive hazed void.  A reflective labyrinth emerges, guiding you towards warmth.  A rite of passage, a journey from darkness to light, a disorientation of the senses.The Dome – a standout at last year’s festival – is set to return with all-new, original content and 30% bigger this year. Visually produced by Dirt Empire with original music, sound design, and spherical audio spatialization by Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans, the 90-foot dome allows more than 250 festivalgoers at a time to experience the 360 degree immersive theater and provides its viewers with an unparalleled collective sensory experience. Proclaimed by the Observer as “the selling point of THE LAB,” The Dome is where Panorama’s synthesis of art, technology, music and design is given its ultimate expression.
