We stopped by the opening of the MEDIATE Art Group’s highly anticipated Illuminated Forest last week at The Lab in San Francisco. We met a few photographers while we were there and they were each kind enough to send us a few photos. I really enjoyed seeing each of them express a different point of view about the installations. Especially since many of th installations were activated by the viewer making sounds.

This Black Rock Arts Foundation supported exhibition features an artist-imagined multimedia environment by Agnes Szelag, Ben Bracken, Jorge Bachman and Alan So in which viewers activate both visual and auditory sensations. The installation includes environmental pieces by Suzanne Husky, Jessica Resmond, Reenie Charriere, Vaughn Bell, Alyce Santoro, Sam Easterson and Elin Oyen Vister.

This experiential exhibit actively reminds people that what we do has impact: on our own lives, on others, and the world around us, both in the present and the future. The Forest will host experiential performances by some of the most compelling local, national and international artists and musicians.
