    Interactive Installation: TABULA RASA - Manipulate items on the clean slate to create and capture your own moment [capsaicin] and 88.

    Interactive Installation: LIGHT JAZZ - (Debut Installment) An interactive light sculpture that allows participants to play with colors, patterns, time, and each other all while enjoying a lovely breeze by Branden Hall and 88.

    Interactive Video Triptych: LUZIDEN - Luziden plunges the viewer into the surreal world of lucid dreams. Created using concepts and material from actual dreams gathered by the artist, Luziden allows the viewer to produce a unique visual and aural Freudian dream-state through interaction with a MIDI keyboard. It is the artist's attempt to negotiate the psyche of the individual as it meshes with the Jungian 'collective unconscious.' [capsaicin]

    Video Installation UNTITLED MIND (multilayered mapped projection design conceived as a short film video dance piece) by Laia Cabrera in collaboration with Catherine Correa and Isabelle Duverger.

    Art All Night: Nuit Blanche DC
    DC Commission on the Arts

    Nuit Blanche is an all-night exploration and celebration of art, which began in Paris in 1984 and has since taken the world by storm. Nuit Blanche DC – now in its third edition – is an innovative project that has the ability to bring an artistic and culturally vibrant nightlife to an area looking to expand its creative economy.

    Alliance Francais, Art Soiree and SPAIN arts and culture programmed Wonder Bread Factory as part of Art All Night DC 2011, gathering over 7,000 guests in the former factory in the Shaw neighborhood, and in 2012, at galleries and organizations in the Chinatown and Penn Quarter neighborhoods, gathering 15,000 guests. Here's a video from the last one:
    This is one of 12 venues included in the Art All Night DC 2013 Festival, presented by Shaw Main Streets and sponsored by Douglas Development Corporation, the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development, and DC Main Streets.

    Special thanks to Douglas Development for their support and for making this newly renovated space available.
