Viewing the restoration of old things is in and of itself restorative. I did not think I would watch all 21+ minutes when I clicked play on the first video of a frame restoration featured here…but I did. Then, I watched all nine minutes of the second one I found. Soothing.
Art & Design
Art should be something of a haunting. A memory imprinted forever inside of you. Artist Rone seems to have created the perfect artistic installation in a rather unexpected place: A sprawling 1930’s abandoned and decrepit Australian mansion.
The artist describes the ruined gallery as “part exhibit, part installation, part VR and AR experience”. Empire combines art, vision, sound, light, botanical design and scent to take audiences on a hauntingly immersive multi-sensory journey through a faded icon. Full details here.
