Seen by many as one of the highlights of Panorama, THE LAB will feature the “Dome” – a 360-degree trademark centerpiece experience of Panorama – and five experiential activations, providing festivalgoers with unparalleled immersive experiences.THE LAB is comprised once again with New York City-based artists and studios inspired by a more organic environment and HP’s commitment to a technology-driven sustainable future. THE LAB, Designed and Curated by META: The Art of Being There, will create a world of Fractal Nature–rather than being in enclosed tents and darker spaces, the installations will work more fluidly with the summer environment to shape a daytime-friendly, communal, decentralized and natural experience. HP is once again on board as the official technology sponsor for Panorama. The experiential activations all leverage the use of HP technology to create immersive interactivity for festival guests.“HP is excited to continue its reinvention journey with Panorama. We are now in our third year as the official technology sponsor and look forward to providing attendees with experiences that amaze through immersive and dynamic activations in THE LAB, Powered by HP,” said Emily Ketchen, Regional Head of Marketing, HP Inc, in a press release. “Panorama is the perfect place for HP to meet festival goers where they are and allow them to experience our products in a real and engaging way.”See below for the full lineup of artist installations included at THE LAB:Pixel Vortex by The Windmill FactoryPixel Vortex is an ethereal temple of play – a bioluminescent dreamscape of flying pixels. Upon squeezing through any of the multitude of openings you are immediately bombarded with LED balloons whirling in a powerful vortex of wind. The balloons swirl around the shimmering space, flowing up to the apex and back down. Persons enter and exit in games of hide and seek with their friends as they toss balloons around and play like children among the most technologically advanced balloon drop ever.Infinite Wild by Smooth TechnologyInfinite Wild is a solar-powered installation in which viewers find themselves surrounded by nature-inspired art. Flowing colors transport them on a journey through seasons, environments, and living animations. Sixty thousand LEDs dangle like vines around them as a mirrored ceiling and floor platform extends the image into infinity. Participants are invited in by a cooling mist that provides a much-needed respite from the mid-day sun. While strolling through this living jungle of LED vines, they can also be presented an opportunity to fill reusable water bottles, encouraging sustainability.As Above, So Below by Kate RaudenbushA transformative gathering space inspired by the fractal geometry of Sierpinski icosahedrons. It welcomes all to contemplate the humbling potential of their existence that occupies the here and now, and the infinitely large and infinitely small worlds that lie beyond their awareness, waiting to be discovered.(hy·per·sub·tle) by SuperbrightLook around with your phone’s camera. You are surrounded by beautiful, strange and abstract human creatures dancing to the music from the festival. Augmented reality pushes the limits of our imagination.

Poe’s Perspective: LAFC does it better than other LA teams

first_imgLos Angeles has too many sports teams. It’s probably the only city to offer two options for every sport — Rams or Chargers, Lakers or Clippers, Dodgers or Angels. In a city this stuffed with superstars and national championship bids, it’s nearly impossible to carve out the space for a new team.This couldn’t be more true when it comes to soccer, the fourth-tier sport city’s (or perhaps even fifth or sixth, behind college football and basketball). Los Angeles has seen its fair share of failed soccer ventures — read up on Chivas USA if you need proof of this — and until this year, the hold of the Galaxy and its legion of edge-of-retirement headliners seemed too strong to break.But this season, all of that was proven wrong with the introduction of LAFC. The fledgling club was forced to take on a behemoth of the MLS in rooting itself into the Los Angeles sports culture. It was a David and Goliath story, one that the new team never won on the pitch when the two crosstown rivals met three times throughout the season.And yet, at the end of this season — as LAFC sits in second in the Western Conference, 9 points ahead of a Galaxy team that won’t make the playoffs — it feels as if the new kids won this round. It might be a little early to say this, but I’m going to go ahead and do it. LAFC is soccer in Los Angeles.It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what LAFC did right, but one scene from every home game stands out to me for some reason. In the moments leading up to kickoff, the team flaunts its mascot, Olly, a Red Naped Shaheen that zips around the stadium at 210 miles per hour. Each game, a different celebrity or member of the community holds Olly to begin this ceremony. Last week, it was Meghan Trainor. In weeks past, it was Sophia Bush, Ty Burrell. On the home opener, co-owner Will Ferrell emerged with the bird held high on his fist, screwing up his face in his notorious stank face while lifting his arm in a triumphant stance. And then, while Olly swoops along the stands, the Jumbotron features one of those video of the team, complete with aggressively epic music, to set the rhythm for the bird’s dips and drops.It’s stupid. I don’t mean to sound judgmental, but this ritual is stupid, and it’s exactly the reason that LAFC works so well. A lot of what makes sports great is also what makes it dumb — body paint, cheeseheads, ass slapping, turnover chains — you name it. Sports are silly and dumb and fun, and that’s the point. LAFC captured this spirit of fun, with all its silly excitement and boisterous chants. Perhaps it was best equipped to do so with Ferrell at the helm, attending games and offering support in his unique, witty way. The team leans firmly into the fun of the sport. It invites celebrity guests left and right, hosts fan events on a weekly basis to spur community interaction between players and fans. This team is tangible, accessible. If you wanted to this season, you could meet one of the the team’s leading goal-scorers, Adama Diomande, at an event at a dollar store. Walker Zimmerman, the heart of the team’s defense, regularly daylights as a cook at Pink’s Hot Dogs and Randy’s Donuts. LAFC might be made up of a deep roster of soon-to-be stars, but its emphasis on community involvement has allowed that stardom to feel human. In the end, it’s hard to break down every single thing that LAFC did right. On the field, it assembled a deep team led by two stars — Carlos Vela, a Mexican international player who drew wide support from the majority Latino population of downtown Los Angeles, and Diego Rossi, a 20-year-old who has already become the face of the club’s future.Off the field, the club invested in its people. This simple concept of approaching the community — “street by street, block by block” as one of the team’s slogans reads — shouldn’t feel groundbreaking, yet it was both refreshing and effective.After one last road game against Sporting KC on Sunday, LAFC will head into its first-.ever MLS playoffs. It will bring a fearsome attack, bolstered by Rossi, Vela and Diomande. But more importantly, the team will bring a fierce fanbase, one that will prepare for victory and remain loyal through defeat.No matter the outcome of the postseason, LAFC has won something greater than a championship in its inaugural season. The team has won over Los Angeles.Julia Poe is a senior majoring in print and digital journalism. Her column, “Poe’s Perspective,” runs Thursdays.last_img read more
