Stand inside an “experience machine” conceived as a prototype for a global telecommunications system in Signals, opening March 5.
In 1965 Stan VanDerBeek built his extraordinary “Movie-Drome”: a spherical dome structure in which viewers could walk or sit or lie down while high-speed overlapping projections flooded the interior, enveloping viewers in a cascade of images of overwhelming “visual velocity,” as the artist called it.
See the piece reconstructed at full scale for the first time in #signals: How Video Transformed the World, a major exhibition bringing together over six decades of media work from the #MoMACollection, opening March 5.
