With its second year coming up this weekend, Panorama New York City[1] is gearing up to change the playing field on Randall’s Island–literally. With an interactive art space set up dubbed The Lab[2], powered by HP, festival goers will be able to experience five New York City artist’s work in between checking out sets by Dua Lipa, Janet Jackson and The Killers[3]. The Lab is a hub of digital art set up at the center of the festival grounds, complete with five interactive exhibits. From emotional energy ups and downs to a psychedelic color flow that will take you beyond your physical space, these installations feature music, technology and creation to elevate your festival experience. Plus, The Lab also features a 360-degree virtual reality theater called The Dome. With a capacity of 500 people, this transformative globe will return to Panorama with a contemporary adaptation of a satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott, first published in 1884. Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions first premiered at Coachella Music & Arts Festival in 2018 and will show at Panorama’s The Lab this year. Featuring hidden dimensions and a score crafted by artist St. Vincent, attendees will be bathed by spectral colors and sonic beauty.
