NY Love Story A.D. 2019
I don’t like romantic comedies. And I can tell you why. Once, it used to be my favorite genre, but I grew up since then (a bit). Also — I moved to NY. Romantic comedies just don’t ...

When Was the Last Time Your Journal Embarrassed You?
When was the last time you said to yourself: “This is embarrassing”, and you actually meant yourself…? Well, it just happened to me. I sat down to write about something else and I...

Why It’s Important To Not Look Like Shit
Here is my question: Why do you think it’s a good idea to look like shit at home? Some people put on their worst clothes at home - clothes with holes, stretched out, worn out, old and ugly. (B...

You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs To… Find the Frog That Rises to Your Standards
I’ve had a few men in my life so far, and they always disappeared at some point (nowadays, I realize that they actually did me a favor). Once, I used to think it was the end of the world, but ...

You Have To Punch Back
There is a saying in NY: If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. And there is a reason for that. I always say that a relationship with this city is like a relationship with an abusive boy...

Why Does Time Have Value

Wait For the Understanding Nod

Step 63 - It’s All About Priorities
I know a guy in NY who doesn’t like to spend money on a cup of coffee. He doesn’t understand why anyone would spend $6 on a cup of coffee when you can pay $15 for a whole bag. But at the...

Color Factory - Wake Up Your Inner Child

added: 2018-10-11 , category: Discover NY

The problem with NY is that we have too much of everything. There are so many events every day that sometimes - or most of the time - you just choose…to stay at home. And that’s exactly what I wanted to do two Sundays ago, but because one girl recommended this exhibition to me (mentioning that it’s finishing soon and tickets are selling really quickly) I decided to take my friend and go. And we had a blast.

Color Factory is an exhibition which I believe is the future of art exhibitions in general. It’s colorful, Instagram friendly, interactive, has sweet treats along the way and is a lot of fun. I didn’t check it out in advance, I just thought it’s an exhibition about, well, colors. But I was mesmerized, because it’s much more than that. It has many different (colorful, of course) rooms with different activities (flying balloons, spinning wheels, swimming pool with balls) and cameras placed in different spots. The cameras are there to take photos, so you don’t even have to carry your phone. You get a special card at the beginning that you program with your e-mail address, scan, then stand on a specific spot and smile. And a photo will be e-mailed to you while you’re still at the Color Factory. It’s pretty amazing. The rooms look great, and the lighting is good as well, so photos come out looking really professional. 


Why do I believe it’s the future of art exhibition? Because I noticed how much fun we - and all the other people - had. I always knew that playing with balls was fun (well…), but I forgot how easy it is to wake up your inner child. You’re suddenly jumping, laughing, diving into a pool filled with plastic balls, eating ice cream afterwards and getting a free gift - what more could a kid want? And because we’re so trapped on our phones, often forgetting that the real world is more fascinating, having a blast like that is such a refreshing experience. Everyone who left Color Factory had a big smile on their face. I would probably do it again, with more friends this time. And I can’t wait for more exhibitions like that. This one I was told runs for a bit - it will be in NY for a year, so it probably has 10 more months to go. Don’t miss it. And wake up your inner child. I know it’s hidden, but it really wants to get out. So let it out. 


Color Factory, 251 Spring Street, tickets $43, you need at least an hour.
