‘Crystalline’ Interactive Art Installation Brings the Peaceful Calm We Need for 2020

ARTECHOUSE, the United States’ first institution dedicated to 21st Century digital and experiential art, announces Crystalline by ARTECHOUSE, a new series of surreal immersive experiences. The initiative kicks off with work inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2020.

Classic Blue: Crystalline in Washington, DC is opening October 15, 2020. Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit. The new, original installations – opening in DC, NYC, and Miami – seek to do the same; centering our thoughts and fostering resilience. 

“2020 (brought) changes no one expected, making the hue of Classic Blue, and the qualities it represents, more relevant now than ever before.” 

Sandro Keserelidze, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of ARTECHOUSE.

From earth to water to air, each location will present a distinct elemental experience related to the unique qualities of Classic Blue, pushing the limits of our perception of the color. Inspired by blue’s dependability, Crystalline in D.C. explores the color’s connection with earth and crystals through a journey that is both an adventure and a contemplation—an exploration through an illusory, blue-hued castle. 

Representative of our desire for a stable foundation that often feels out of reach during these turbulent times, this surreal yet familiar place offers guests a refuge from the everyday.
