Beyond the Light by ARTECHOUSE at Chelsea Market

Jun 01, 2023
 to Aug 31, 2023 Official Site

ARTECHOUSE, a pioneer in innovative, experiential art and the leading contemporary art space dedicated exclusively to technology-based art, is pleased to announce Beyond the Light. Developed in collaboration with NASA, this visionary and awe-inspiring exhibition is a unique artistic expression of NASA’s scientific discoveries, including newly analyzed galactical data captured by the James Webb Space Telescope, that offers audiences the opportunity to explore the universe through the innovative use of technology-driven art. Beyond the Light will open to the public on June 1, 2023, at ARTECHOUSE NYC, before traveling to Washington, D.C., in the fall.

The exhibition leverages the latest audio-visual technology and bespoke software to reimagine NASA’s scientific processes and discoveries. Throughout the exhibition’s development, ARTECHOUSE Studio worked with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the James Webb Space Telescope Mission team at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), and Johns Hopkins University's William H. Miller III Department of Physics & Astronomy. ARTECHOUSE participated in ongoing working sessions with NASA’s team of leading experts, including astrophysicists, helio physicists, and NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with NASA to bring the universe closer to our visitors and inspire them through Beyond the Light,” said Sandro Kereselidze, ARTECHOUSE Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer. “We believe that art, science, and technology can come together to offer a fascinating experience, and this exhibition is a perfect example of the convergence of these worlds. Conceptualized through many in-person and virtual sessions with NASA’s team of scientists and specialists, this exhibition takes science and data that already exists and brings it to life artistically in a way that’s never been done before. ”

Beyond the Light is a new vision for experiencing the cosmos through the timeless story of light. ARTECHOUSE Studio delved into the vast database researched and produced by NASA to bring what is often invisible to our naked eyes about our universe into the highest resolution possible. Spotlighting James Webb Space Telescope’s perspective-bending discoveries of our early galaxies, the exhibition explores light as the throughline that connects history, science, engineering, technology, and the astonishing discoveries driving the evolution of human exploration.

The exhibition merges scientific and artistic storytelling, anchoring on a 25-minute cinematic journey through a captivating audio-visual interpretation of how we have experienced light over time, presented in today's highest-resolution projection technology to deliver a feast for the senses. With the exquisite universe as its backdrop, Beyond the Light highlights the importance of light in our pursuit of knowledge and the evolution of technology that allows us to discover beyond our known experiences. Through art, visitors will be able to uncover an interwoven connection of disciplines used to explore our galaxy and beyond. Educational and interactive, the exhibition ignites imagination beyond what is visible and is suitable for all ages.

ARTECHOUSE, NYC’s original home for digital art, is located in the former boiler room of Chelsea Market at 439 W 15th Street in New York.
