14th Factory DTLA

Created by Simon Birch, 14th factory, located in the outskirts of DTLA, has the perfect mix of video, installation, paintings, and eerie sets to amuse the whole family. I knew I wanted to see it as soon as I saw the room of pitchforks (the Crusher) popping up all over my IG feed. Selfie opportunities galore got the kids onboard, their curiosities piqued.  A Kubrick-inspired set? What is there not to like?  

So on this 90 degree day my family and I made the trek to, I am not quite sure where truthfully. (Somewhere between DTLA and Dodger stadium.)  I tried not to read about it ahead of time as I like to be surprised. I do recommend reading about the pieces later as you will not find much information there.  Note: you CAN bring your DSLRs! And do I recommend you search out some of the artists on the internet after as the experience grows on you. Here are a few visual spoilers (taken with my iPhone.)

One of my favorite rooms was Tannhauser’s “the road back”. Above is a short clip from the room.
