XYZT: Abstract Landscapes at Artechouse in Washington, D.C., is an interactive exhibition that examines the relationship between audience, art, and digital technology.

Designed by French contemporary digital artists and multimedia choreographers Adrien M & Claire B, the exhibition is focused on four elements—X (horizontal) Y (vertical) Z (depth) and T (time)—and features 10 different interactive exhibits.

Using technology and light as mediums, the installations use algorithms to stem patterns of physical behavior—visitors can “walk through grass” at the Field of Vectors and watch the blades sway with their movements, or manipulate light particles with the touch of their hand at the Kinetic Sand installation.

Other exhibits tell visitors to touch, dance, or blow, and use various technologies including LCD screens, video projectors, and kinetic cameras, to create a sensory experience.

The gallery, conceived by Sandro Kereselidze and Tatiana Pastukhova of Art Soiree, aims to redefine the audience’s relationship with creative arts by evoking connections and emotional responses to art through immersive experiences.

“With the opening of Artechouse, it is our goal to continue to make an impact on the international art scene and community by introducing the ultimate new age destination for arts and technology,” said Pastukhova, managing director of Artechouse, in a press release by the gallery.

The exhibition is now open and running through September 3.
