Finding The Art In Everything
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
⁃ Albert Einstein
Art is a figuration of the imagination. Growing up we've have always been in tuned with our creative side. And as we continue to expand our clever minds, we understand that Einstein's quote speaks volumes. We realize that knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, and allowing us to be creative. Creativity and art is more of a lifestyle for us. We literally are the type of people who find the art in almost everything.
When we see anything, whether it’s a work of art, a movie, fashion, or even a billboard, our brains perform a massively complex process of reading & making meaning which allows us to learn and comprehend. This example gives us the opportunity to discuss with the fact that if you look carefully you can find the art and creativity in anything. Art is too subjective to hamper it with rules or judgments of “good” and “bad”.
As we continue to evolve, we want to engage in activities that take our minds to the next level. We want to explore in activities that inspires us; makes us think.
This past holiday weekend we decided to get art inspired for up-and-coming projects. On Sunday, we explored DC’s newest attraction known as the Artechouse. The Artechouse is a gallery dedicated to the emerging medium of art and technology. Just a week after opening to the public, it has quickly gained so much social media attention due to its current interactive digital installation, “XYZT: Abstract Landscapes.” In typical museums you are told not to touch the art but here, interaction was strongly encouraged. The fact that we were able to touch the art made the experience more enjoyable.
If you are in the DMV area we encourage you to check out the gallery. Tickets to “XYZT: Abstract Landscapes” at Artechouse are available for purchase on the gallery’s website — only a few are reserved each day for walk-ins. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for everyone. In the evening, the bar is open to those 21 and up. The gallery only last until September 1st so make your way there fast!
