Xculture and DC Design Babes Wonder Emporium on East City Art | EVENTS |



Wonder Emporium will take place Saturday, July 16, 2011 from 9pm to 3am

According to the producers, attendees should be prepared for another sensory overload and a night filled with art, music and design.


Digital Installations:

  • HIGGS-BOSON Interact with a plasma generator to create beautiful shapes and colors, while your friends manipulate a mad-scientist-esque device to distort, twist, re-color, and obliterate the image. Take screenshots using the nearby buttons – the best ones will be posted online during the event.
  • LASMABOOK An unusual digital guestbook.  Enter your name and a note and it will be displayed on a large screen along with images from the Higgs-Boson.
  • #30: LI, THE RADIANCE A dazzling user-controlled light show. Press buttons to toggle lights. A meditative exercise for mind, body, and spirit – facilitated by photons.


  • Live Design Pong contest: Watch 2 teams battle out three design rounds with Live Scores. (Email for Details valli@dcdesignbabes.com or alisa@dcdesignbabes.com)

Cash Bar with Drink specials all night
