Art in Island, the Philippines’ latest interactive museum, is not only dubbed as the world’s largest 3D art exhibit but a Filipino’s selfie dream. Seriously. Once you enter a painted golden archway, you’ll immediately pull out your phones and cameras for the next 2-3 hours. I originally envisioned a huge room of two or three displays within a wall but I was wrong. Almost every 3D painting flows into the next, therefore, hallways upon hallways and rooms with elevated ceilings are covered with detailed adaptations from artists over the centuries which are made in such a way attendees are really a part of the art.
The detailing in this showcase is insane you can only imagine the effort, patience, and perspective needed to complete this 120 day project. Even if you weren’t to participate in characterization and posing, simply walking through to observe and appreciate the artwork is mind-blowing.
I strongly recommend experiencing Art in Island if you live or ever visit the Philippines! Just make sure your camera is charged!
“Whenever you visit an art museum, you are always expected to just look around quietly. You are not allowed to touch anything nor take pictures. You don’t even have a single proof of you being there. That’s why, for those who think that ‘art museum is not for me’, we bring you Art in Island.
Art In Island allows visitors to interact and have fun with the art pieces. You can take as much pictures and videos as you want! Here in Art In Island, we want you to be part of the art.”
