Van Gogh Immersive Experience Singapore

Van Gogh Immersive Experience in Singapore

After stops in Europe and the USA in recent years, the Van Gogh Immersive Experience is coming to Singapore. From 1 March to 1 October 2023, the world of Vincent Van Gogh will be brought to life like never before on Singapore’s Sentosa Island.

Experience Van Gogh in immersive projection rooms

Discover the multi-sensory 360° exhibition that combines art with interactive technology. The exhibition takes you on a visually rich journey through the life and work of the Dutch painter. See more than 300 works of art fill the walls around you, including room-filling immersive projections of some of Van Gogh’s most stunning works. Since 2017, more than 5 million visitors from around the world have visited the exhibition.

Multi-touch scanner table uses AI to create visitors’ Van Gogh paintings

Our partner Hustle&Bustle from Singapore is responsible for organising the exhibition. Garamantis is contributing a Van Gogh table for the interactive hands-on area of the exhibition. Visitors can create their own drawings, scan and digitise them on the table using a multi-touch display. Before the drawing is digitally brought to life, an artificial intelligence transforms it in the style of Van Gogh. In a matter of seconds, simple line drawings or colour compositions are transformed into complex paintings, as if by the master himself. The table offers a choice of three variants of the original drawing, each with a different level of manipulation.

Artificial intelligence trained on thousands of images

The technical implementation is based on the Stable Diffusion neural network. This artificial intelligence is a deep learning image generator. Main input is the visitor’s drawing. The system was previously trained with a set of around 60,000 paintings in the style of van Gogh from the animated film “Loving Vincent” (2017). This combination of these technological components creates a playful and surprising approach to Van Gogh’s art for visitors.
