Digital Adventure at Art in Island

Araneta Center, Cubao has been my hub up to this day as this place was an accessible destination from where I live in Rizal Province. Not really my favorite place but when I think about hanging out, I simply think about the Gateway Mall.  It's all around 30-minute ride taking a jeepney and going down to LRT Station in Santolan was just 7 minutes away to the mall. Farmer's Plaza, SM, Ali Mall and Gateway are just walking distance at Araneta Center. Think about the foods and it's all there, from fast foods to fancy restaurants.  The shopping center had changed a lot and condominium like Manhattan Garden rose, the old New Frontier Cinema became Kia Theater, Shopwise formerly the Fiesta Carnival and there were lots of BPO or Business Process Outsourcing company in the said center. So basically the old center which was dark and scary had turned into light and interesting place to rusticate and now became 24 hour hub. 

Just a few years ago, it was surprising to see a digital museum built at 15th avenue, which is a 15 minute walking distance from Gateway mall LRT Station in Aurora Blvd. The Art in Island is a 3D museum that run since December 2014.

Last January 25, 2018, my cousin from Canada who were in vacation invited me to go The Art in Island. The entrance fee was 500 pesos and it featured some of the digital art painting of 14 Korean painters and they 180 art works which was finished in just 4 months.  It is a 2-storey building and aside from the 3D arts there's a restaurant at the second floor and a coffee shop at the back of the ground floor building.

It was fun though as you'll get to experience an adventure beyond your dreams and it seems that the fantasy is real.  It's like you're part of the 3D world where the adventure changes from time to time you'll go to see another different world. Although I'm not really into this digital, but I know those on it in the digital arts can easily relate.  Yes, I was able to relate quite a bit but the experience was something unique.  It was an adventure and more on fun because you'll become part of the digital world so you'll get some selfies using your cell phone.

We had spent 3 hour in the museum and had meal afterwards in the restaurant at the second floor.
