Don’t judge by the chapter you walked into.
It’s a new year, so I want you to change one thing. I would say “we,” but I’ve already been working on it the last two years (not that I’ve mastered it yet). Don’...

Why Some Women Don’t Want to Have Kids (And Why the Reason Is Not What You Think It Is)
Yes, I want to write about it (again), because it bothers me. I recently realized I don’t want to have kids (now and maybe ever). And I realized how difficult it is for a woman not only to adm...

You’re Fine
2018 has been a very successful year for me, because I finally understand that I’m completely fine. I just look at myself and I finally see myself. It took me half my life to understand it, bu...

It’s Profound to Be Understood
As Whoopi Goldberg said in her book „If He Says: ‚You complete me’ — Run!”, which I’ve already written about on JLNY some time ago, people tend to mistake love fo...

You’re Always Becoming
Michelle Obama released her book memoir, „Becoming”, and I keep seeing it everywhere in NYC. I haven’t read it yet and now I really want to. Not because I consider Barack Obam...

Drop This Attitude
I just had my best friend Gosia visited me from Chicago a few weeks ago. We spent the whole weekend together excited about each other. We did a few activities, but what was the most important was th...

Is Your Partner’s Skin Color or Country of Origin Relevant At All?
I will answer the titular question right away: „I don’t think so”. And I’m pretty sure I am right. I honestly don’t understand this whole theory about having a partner ...

How To Get the Body You Want
Have you ever said to yourself: “I’m so fat”…? Or “I can’t even look at myself”…?. Or “I will never lose all this weight”…? Or &l...

Accept the challenge
Until now, my favorite sentence was always: “Hope he’ll change after we get married.” (Yeah,  sure, into a pumpkin…) But there is a new contender that I find equally ...

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...

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.
