Highlights from Wonderspaces San Diego 2018

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to visit Wonderspaces with the San Diego Blogger Babes.

Wonderspaces is a temporary immersive art exhibition that it currently being shown on the San Diego Waterfront at the B Street Pier.

Wonderspaces graciously hosted a small group of the SDBBs, and let me tell you it was an amazing experience. There were so many cool installations, but here are a few of my favorites.

Black Balloons by Tadao Cern

This installation features hundreds of black balloons, half of which are floating and half of which are sitting on the floor. Such a cool concept!

Into the Breath by Stefano Ogliari Badessi

Into the Breath is described by the artist as a “Dragon Balloon.” Viewers literally walk into the mouth of the dragon. Another neat thing about the piece is that it is made of plastic bags!

Body Paint by Memo Akten

This piece was so fun! You get to “paint” with your body via a canvas and motion sensor. I could have played with this all night long!

The Border by Carolin Wanitzek

This super cute paper forest had so many small details. I loved seeing it.

To Do by Illegal Art

To Do is made up of hundreds of Post-It notes which make up a giant “to-do” list. You can add your own notes to the existing piece.

Submergence by Squidsoup

Submergence was by far my favorite installation. I loved that you could walk through the piece and be a part of the experience. The installation uses over 8,000 lights. The lighting changes throughout the piece and takes a total of 12 minutes to run through the entire experience.

I had a blast at Wonderspaces and hanging out with the San Diego Blogger Babes for the first time. Be sure to check out Wonderspaces before it is gone. Tickets up until the end of July are on sale now.

Tips

  • Many of the installations involve flashing lights and videos and have epilepsy warnings. If you are prone to seizures, be sure to look out for these warning signs.
  • Go late at night. We arrived around 8:30 pm and were able to have many of the installations to ourselves, which as bloggers is helpful to get the shot. I was also able to find free parking quite easily at that time.
