Crowd-Sourced Coverage of “Dynamo” at the Grand Palais
In the age of smart phones, anyone can become a videographer. So this week, if you can’t make it to the “Dynamo” exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris, walk a mile in someone else’s shoes down the avenue Champs-Élysées and tour the two-floor elixir of light, space, and vision—virtually. Much to the contrary of cell phone-banned exhibitions, “Dynamo” encourages visitors to capture their steps and submit their account via a mobile app that aggregates videos, photographs, and tweets on a real time screen at the exit of the museum.
With a nod to this clever idea, we searched the internet for the following videos, each showing a unique perspective of the exhibition at the Grand Palais—a space not easily defined. If you made it to the exhibition (or plan to attend this week) feel free to post your own contributions on Artsy. Click on the post icon in the navigation bar to get started.
“Dynamo” is on view at the Grand Palais, Paris, through July 22, 2013. Explore the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais on Artsy.
