Fav Finds: The 14th Factory

In a series of posts tagged as "Favorite Finds", we want to share with you some of our favorite hangouts and experiences–proof that we do get out from behind our screens. (¬‿¬)

Recently, we visited The 14th Factory, a gallery that showcases several art installations like no other. As stated on their website, it was "Conceived by Hong Kong-based British artist Simon Birch, the vision of The 14th Factory is to create a new, independent paradigm for socially-engaged art, a kind of guerilla action where art occupies and re-energizes underutilized or even derelict urban spaces and gifts them back to the community in the form of a transformative experience." With 14 large scale installations, there is ample space to view the art from afar and up close - allowing you to experience it on a personal level with no other patrons in the room.

A spectacular experience of movement, paintings and audio/video that remind us to be grateful for life. We couldn't help but shoot photo after photo and were definitely inspired. If you're in Los Angeles, we highly recommend visiting The 14th Factory - for it's a beautiful and mesmerizing execution of tech and art.
