What is Multi-Sensory Experience?

A multi-sensory experience refers to an art encounter that engages more than just one sense.

This means that visitors don’t merely look at static artworks on a wall.

It is incorporating a variety of sensory elements (visual, audio, aroma, etc.) to enhance the viewer’s connection with the art and the artist.

The multi-sensory experience of Van Gogh Alive was brought by SENSORY4™️.

As Grande Experiences states, “It is almost impossible not to get a sense of Van Gogh’s thoughts, feelings, and state of mind as his works come to life in vivid details.”

The Experience

Entering the exhibit area, my heart went giddy when I saw the outline of the paintings.

Heart-eyed here!!

I nearly cried when I saw my favorite Vincent’s quote, lol srsly.

A selfie couldn’t be missed in this life-size, The Starry Night wall.

Also, here’s a funny comparison of me five years ago with the ‘Starry Night’ wall! HAHA.

See my blog here 5 years ago: Sip & Gogh Paint your own Starry Night

Entering the gallery, you would be surrounded by high-quality projections of 3,000 visual displays that come to life in walls, columns, ceilings, and floors.

The classical soundscape that synchronizes with the visuals enhances the emotional impact of the experience as it will immerse you with Van Gogh’s spiral thoughts that reflects so much in his arts.

I barely noticed the aroma and scents. It could be that I am so engulfed with the visuals that the olfactory stimuli had been negligible to me.

What I liked most were the thoughts in text by Van Gogh flashing side by side with his art. His feelings are almost tangible in his life-size strokes flashing before my eyes.

The Bedroom in Arles

This is Vincent’s room during his stay in the The Yellow House in Arles (which he also painted).

Instead of just musing over the painting, now, you can actually step inside the Bedroom in Arles.

This part of the exhibit is interactive. You are allowed to touch and move around the room.

He created 3 oil paintings of his bedroom and the third was created during his confinement in asylum of Saint-Remy which he voluntarily admit himself because he knew he was mentally-ill.

The warped perspective of the 3rd painting were intentional and indicative of his downward mental health.

The warping of perspective, bold colors, and swirling patterns in “The Bedroom” is an embodiment of van Gogh’s struggle with mental illness and his attempts to convey his emotional experiences through his art.

The Letters of Vincent van Gogh


The Sunflower Mirror Room

A room filled with sunflowers in the exhibit is inspired by Van Gogh’s series of Sunflowers.

It is undeniable that yellow was Vincent van Gogh’s primary favorite color in his artworks.

In his series of Sunflowers, it’s incredible how he used a limited palette of yellows and browns and still produced artwork that is nothing short than the real thing.

The Sunflowers series was inspired by the gardens of Montmartre in Paris. These paintings were created during his stay in Arles, which depicts his hopes and optimism in establishing his own studio.


The Art Studio

The art studio within the Van Gogh Alive exhibit offered a unique opportunity for the goers to recreate his art, The Starry Night or The Bedroom in Arles.

The setup, with designated stations and instructional screens, made it easy to follow along and get creative.

My shameless take on sketching The Starry Night. Haha, my masterpiece lol
