Telus Spark opens Quantum Sandbox, a new immersive art gallery

Like escape rooms and drive-ins, interactive exhibit halls have their moment in the sun and man, do we want to bask in the light. Next month, hot on the heels of the success of its latest intriguing exhibit, Calgary’s Telus Spark Science Center will launch Quantum Sandbox, a pixelated experience of color, sound and movement.

Described as an endless space where science and art meet, Spark’s permanent digital art gallery is the first of its kind in Canada, with inventive new exhibitions created seasonally.

During Quantum Sandbox, Calgarians will be able to play with wall-to-wall projections and explore the “subatomic” world.

“Immerse yourself in a state of flux, a quantum state that has intriguing connections to local Indigenous worldviews,” they say on their website. “Quantum Sandbox might just change your view of the world…or at least open things up.”
