Arty Farty Friday ~ First there was "surround sound", now there's "surround Van Gogh"

 Self portrait
At a new Van Gogh exhibit in Paris, you won’t just be able to see Van Gogh's most famous works — you’ll also be able to step inside them.
An immersive show called Van Gogh, la nuit étoilée, just debuted at digital art center L’Atelier des Lumièrest and it’s an exquisite treat for the eyes. The exhibit features several of the Dutch artist’s most well-known paintings, from "Starry Night" and "Sunflowers" to "Potato Eaters" and "The Bedroom," by projecting them all over the walls and floors. These larger-than-life works highlight Van Gogh’s exaggerated brushstrokes and bold color choices, and are paired with musical selections from pianist and composer Luca Longobardi.


More on the exhibition HERE, with photographs.

My post from 2007 about Vincent and his astrology is in the archives HERE.

I saw the film on this, I think it was on FB.


But a thought: they keep messing with his work. Do we need all the enhancements, like the starry, starry night soundtrack, etc.

Wisewebwoman ~ Probably not needed, for most people - it does seem like over-egging the pudding. Just some very bland, soft background music to cut any absolute silence and detract from chit-chatting viewers might be preferable.
