Imagine Van Gogh provides a virtual promenade inside the life and work of the iconic artist Vincent Van Gogh.
The creators of this exhibit, Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, use high-definition video technology to immerse visitors deep inside the artwork, enabling them to experience all the creative emotions of the artist through his use of brush strokes and color.
This exhibit takes a fresh, nontraditional approach to Van Gogh’s work by enlarging the scale of the paintings, providing an amplified interpretation that uses the details as a means to explore the work—from the stars in his night skies to the seeds in his sunflowers.
Each painting is magnified and projected on multiple floor-to-ceiling video touchscreens, and the exhibit is accompanied by classical music—a truly sensory experience that allows visitors to almost feel the brush strokes on their skin.
Viewers engage and interact with the paintings in a way that completely recharges and reinvigorates their appreciation and approach to art and museums by providing them with fresh eyes through which to see all artwork they encounter.
