In case you were wondering, the word lumière is French for “light.” Through advanced technology, Infinity des Lumières brings to life world-famous artworks using lights, sounds, and movement, providing us with a fully immersive and unforgettable art experience!
Famous Artworks Brought to Life at Infinity Des Lumières
What can you expect to see at Infinity Des Lumières? The digital art museum features not just one, but three mesmerising art experiences: Verse, Dreamed Japan, and Van Gogh.
Verse. This is a “metaphysical journey” created by Thomas Vanz, showcasing magical images, bursts of colour, and movement — reflective of the amazing cosmos. Backed by orchestra music composed by Jonathan Fitas, Verse is an exhibit that’s created for immersive art spaces.
Dreamed Japan. Brave samurai warriors and beautiful geishas, set within Hokusai’s enchanting landscapes and seascapes, are just some of the things you will see at Dreamed Japan. This exhibit takes you to 19th century Japan and embodies ukiyo-e art, which means “floating world pictures.” You’ll just have to see it (and experience it)… to believe it!
Van Gogh. Creating breathtaking masterpieces such as Sunflowers (1888) and Starry Night (1889), Vincent Van Gogh was truly ahead of his time. Until today, many artists draw inspiration and influence from his famous artworks. And today, we can all experience the vibrant colours and captivating images of Van Gogh, enhanced by wonderful music and enchanting movement.
Collaboration of Art and Culture in Dubai
All of these exhibits is brought to us by InfinityArt, Culturespaces, Barco, and Dubai Culture. InfinityArt is a private entity based in Dubai, with Infinity de Lumières as its inaugural project. Meanwhile, Culturespaces is a private organization that manages museums, monuments, and art exhibits. It was founded in Paris, France, in 1990, and has been creating digital art centres using Barco projectors for quite some time now.
And of course, in line with boosting Dubai’s position as an international centre for culture, a dynamic hub for talent, and “incubator” for creativity — Dubai Culture supports Infinity des Lumières in providing a one-of-a-kind art and cultural experience for everyone!
