Wonderspaces // A Pop Up Arts Celebration

At TRND, we strive to constantly immerse ourselves in anything that is artistic and expressive to better understand the future of fashion. So when we heard that Wonderspaces, a pop up museum of extraordinary experiences, would be setting up in San Diego it was a no brainer to go check it out!

Inside, we found art enjoyed at the world's biggest festivals and fairs like SXSW, room sized interactive art installations, virtual reality, and more. 

If the founders deem this trial run in San Diego a success, they will be headed off on a cross country tour, so stay tuned to see if Wonderspaces will be visiting your city next!

Until then, check out some of our pictures from our visit....

Sweet Spot is a shimmering color installation of 3700 thin multicolor nylon cords hanging ceiling to floor through handmade wood compartments.

ADA is an interactive art-making machine, a helium-filled, membrane-like globe that is spiked with charcoals and floats freely in room, drawing on the walls.

On a Human Scale began by filming everyday New Yorkers singing. Their individual notes are woven into a fully interactive video installation that the public is invited to play, using a piano.

In Sweeper’s Clock the hour and minute hands are formed by two men sweeping garbage, clockwise, filmed in real time. 

Come together, by Michael Murphy, is what the artist calls a "perpetual shift". Stand in the right spot, and the pieces shift from an abstract collection of suspended cylinders to a fist.

Daydream is an audiovisual installation that generates space distortions and plays with the relationship between space and time, accelerations, contractions, shifts, and metamorphosis.

On Tilt is an airdancer party.  It was previously enjoyed at Nuit Blanche in Toronto, Canada.
