DYNAMO: Flashing Lights & Optical Illusions

You don’t have to be an art enthusiast to appreciate this exhibit. DYNAMO: A Century of Light & Motion at the Grand Palais in Paris is all about the visitor experience, even if it may cause dizziness or perhaps a headache.

The visual exhibit, which takes at least an hour to go through, explores “notions of space, vision and light” and features contemporary works from 1913 – 2013, with highlights artists including Ann Veronica Janssens, Anish Kapoor, John Armleder, Carsten Höller, Philippe Decrauzat, Jeppe Hein, Felice Varini and Xavier Veilhan.

While my head space is deeply rooted in fashion, I divided some of my favorite works from the exhibit into themes below. Whatever side of the fashion vs. art debate you’re on, I think you’ll agree that there are several current trends that directly relate to some of the visuals.
