art exhibit // spaced out: migration to the interior

red bull studios is a project space in new york that serves as an exhibition space, a recording studio, radio booth, a lecture hall and a performance space. a recent exhibit there, spaced out: migration to the interior, just closed. luckily i popped in there on the second to last day with my good friend + fellow trend forecaster sarah. we were in total awe of the supremely cool psychedelic space + proceeded to roll around on the pink fur carpet while snapping silly pictures of us and wishing we could move in there permanently.

curator phong bui says, "when i came to red bull... i at once discovered this space being quite unconventional, it has incredible curved walls, and in addition you also have the men's room and the women's room painted in glossy, acidic, fluorescent red and yellow, it had all the potential to be a film set for an austin powers movie."

some thoughts: it was intriguing to hear how seeing the space initially affected the ultimate theme and curation of the exhibit. and i'm also bummed i didn't know about the amazing restrooms since i have an odd obsession with colored bathrooms. but knowing us (#sara_h), we would've done a shameful selfie shoot so this is probably for the best!
