ADD a Little WNDR To your Life
If you're looking for the perfect immersive art & technology experience then you have to check out WNDR Museum in West Loop. This incredible sensory experience allows you to be immersed in art as you navigate different rooms and explore the stunning exhibits throughout.
Your senses heighten as you enter the Wndr Museum seeing sequin walls that change color as you trail your fingers against them. Each room has a different story to tell, and I thought it was so creative how each say something in their own way. One of my favorite rooms has a paintbrush that completes a painting with a robot. It's so interesting to see how art, fused with technology, can be so thrilling!
This multi-sensory museum includes installations from Yayoi Kusama and Barbara Kruger. They are opened 7 days a week and reopened with 20+ NEW installations. This is the perfect family getaway, but can also be used for a fun date night experience. There's so many magical rooms inside the museum but if you're looking for personal favorites that is a MUST then some of my favorites were, The WNDR Lightfloor, I enjoyed feeling like I was on a different planet. Basically every time you step the floor lights up like fire flies, shaping and molding to your movements. This amazing floor is made up of 100s of motion sensored LED panels which glisten underneath your feet! Talk about trippy, it's an insanely cool experience!
If you're looking for a calmer, more serene experience, then this next room might be for you. My other favorite is the Flux Room. It's so relaxing as pictures radiate off your body, transporting you to a calm forest, or beautiful sky. The sounds, visuals, and scents are all algorithmically generated. It's brings you this aroma of calm but also makes you feel like you've been to these places before. It almost has it's own pulse that conglomerates with yours making you feel almost in a dream like state. It's beautiful, soothing, and the perfect place to come and just been in the zone with your thoughts.
If you're seen posts about WNDR Museum then you've probably seen the giant silver orbs that hang from the mirror room. This amazing room is "Let’s Survive Forever", 2017 - Yayoi Kusama. It's my next favorite room that I absolutely was in awe over. Fair warning, if you're an avid picture taker, like myself, you have 60 seconds to take all your pictures, revel in the artwork, and bask in it's beauty. You also cannot touch the artwork, which is understandable. However, this room transports almost to a Alice In Wonderland feeling, with the beautiful crystal clear orbs and reflections of yourself all in view.
WNDR Museum was just voted one of the top 5 immersive art experiences in the country by USA Today's Reader Poll and I can completely understand why! There's nothing that I have ever experienced like it. Each room is so unique and it was such a pleasure experiencing it! Thanks for having me WNDR - you surely were a wonder.
Until next time love bugs!
