About Beyond Van Gogh
In an imaginative and immersive presentation crafted for our unique times by world-renowned audiovisual designers, Beyond Van Gogh uses cutting-edge projection technology to create an engaging journey into the world of Van Gogh.
Using his dreams, his thoughts, and his words to drive the experience as a narrative, we move along projection swathed walls wrapped in light, color, and shapes that swirl, dance and refocus into flowers, cafes and landscapes. Masterpieces, now freed from frames, come alive, appear and disappear, flow across multi-surfaces, the minutia of details titillating our heightened senses.
Through his own words set to a symphonic score, we may come to a new appreciation of this tortured artist’s stunning work.
