Today I got a sneak peek of the Come Up to My Room exhibit at the Gladstone Hotel! Art is tucked into rooms and taking over walls. There are 25 installations and 40 artists. It’s such a fun exhibition- you need to go!
This year the installations can be seen from January 16 to 25, 2015.
Menalon + The New Beat collaborate to create a stunning and interactive laser harp where viewers become musicians with the simple stringing of a chord.
This was my favourite installation. So cool! I want one in my house. Listen to a video of it here.
