Since its premiere three months ago, L’Atelier des Lumieres–the first digital art museum in Paris–has beguiled over 400,00 visitors through state-of-the-art visuals and audio that enliven works of art and scintillate the senses with a kaleidoscope of luminous colors and sounds.
People do not learn about culture as they did in the past. The practices are evolving and cultural offering must be in step with them. The marriage of art and digital technology is, in my opinion, the future of the dissemination of art among future generations.
It's 11.30am on a sunny Tuesday and I'm in rue Saint-Maur, in Paris's 11th arrondissement, queuing to collect pre-booked tickets for the noon showing at L'Atelier des Lumières - Paris's first digital museum of fine art. It's worth the wait.
