Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience: Review by Sienna
Vincent Van Gogh is a famous artist who was born in the Netherlands on 30 March 1853. He died at the age of 37 on 29 July 1890. The Van Gogh Immersive Experience highlighted his greatest works, featured key moments in his life and gave us some insight into his thoughts and processes. The exhibition took place in London in an old warehouse on 106 Commercial Street. The VR (virtual reality) At the VR section there were a few Oculas Quest 2 headsets for us to use. The quality of the video was very good but the lenses were a bit scratched and blurry, the fit also wasn’t great. Other than that the VR was quite good! The colouring area The colouring area was probably the best thing there! You could colour in a picture of one of Van Gogh’s art works using only four colours! I think this was the best because at the end you could put your picture on a wall together with thousands of other pictures. The projector room In the projector room, all of Van Gogh’s art was projected onto the walls, roof and floor! It made it feel like you were walking and living inside of his art! The room was dark but well lit by the art projections of painting such as Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Olive Trees, Wheatfield with Crows and Sunflowers, which could be seen on rotation. Prices Adult £19.90 VIP adult £32.00 Child £11.50 VIP child £21.50 I think this is good value for money because you get to try VR, the colouring crayons were really good and the projector room was awesome! I had a VIP pass which included a complimentary VR experience and Starry Night poster.
