Wish I could visit and get into the world of my favorite paintings...
Immersive Museum TOKYO 2023's "Post Impressionism" is recommended for those who love paintings.
As the word "Immersive" suggests, this museum offers visitors the experience of diving into world of paintings.
Here, visitors can experience a new sense of art through the immersive pictures with special sound effects indoors, of world-famous works of art such as Van Gogh's, projected on the walls and floor.
Let us now take you into the world of paintings.
■Fresh experiential area visitors can immerse themselves in the works and worldview of the Post-Impressionists
In the main area, where the immersive video is played, visitors can view main "Post-Impressionist" art works, with Van Gogh, Gauguin, Seurat, and Cézanne as representative artists.
By incorporating "immersive" as well as "appreciative" elements, it naturally draws visitors into the world of art and allows them to experience a contrasting kind of enjoyment, rather than that offered by conventional art museums.
■AI Van Gogh draws your portrait - "Your Portrait by Vincent van Gogh".
In the interactive area "Your Portrait by Vincent van Gogh'',
AI Van Gogh paints portraits of visitors.
A portrait of Van Gogh himself and a blank canvas for guests are to side by side, and when guests sit on a chair in front of the portrait, a sensor recognizes their face and position, and Van Gogh's portrait begins to move, and then he begins to paint.
The colors start to pop on the white canvas's background, and as the colors overlap, the guest's image is gradually drawn up. The completed data can be saved to a cell phone or other device via a QR code.
*Experience is charged, being 500 yen per visit (tax included).
