We’re already tired of immersive art experiences.
Immersive art uses technology such as augmented and virtual reality to merge the physical world with a digital experience.
And we mean that in the nicest way.
Many touring immersive exhibitions coming through US towns and cities are commercial ventures that charge steep prices. With computers and light projectors, these 3-dimensional shows transform the work of great artists into “experiences.” We’ve seen Dalí, Van Gogh and Kahlo in many American markets.
Now, Las Vegas has opened Perception, the city’s first permanent digital art museum. The museum’s inaugural show is of Leonardo DaVinci’s work.
“Guests are first greeted by the Mona Lisa,” reports Nevada Public Radio. Initially, “it just looks like a replica of the famous portrait, but then she seems to come alive.”
And, of course, you complete your experience smack dab in the middle of “The Last Supper.”
With tickets starting at $39.50, perhaps you’ll wind up sitting next to the Apostle Thomas. The doubter.
