"Entering the 14th Factory, the visitor becomes a central player in a contemporary hero's journey, leaving the ordinary world behind and setting out on a voyage of adventure and ultimately, of transformation."
Did it live up to its hype? Yes. I know it's all over Instagram, especially the "The Crusher" Installation & the Space Odyssey room, but I still believe every part in the exhibit was beautifully made. I'm extremely happy that I was able to go with German because we were both genuinely intrigued and able to appreciate all the installations. It was a unique experience for both of us, and I couldn't have imagined to go with anyone else but him. Visiting the 14th Factory certainly got my creative juices flowing, and I'm ready to expand my horizons physically, mentally & visually.
