Everybody in their own imaginations decides what scary is…
What an amazing and dark place! if you’re in Los Angeles and this place is still open then this is one place I highly recommend, The 14th Factory!
The 14th Factory is a 3 acre pop up art show in Lincoln Heights created by British artist, Simon Birchs. The place is dark with a creepy vibe, I’m a huge fan of horror and being scared so this place was a magical and spooky experience for me! 😛
The museum takes place in an abandoned warehouse and is pretty huge. It took years to open and has some tragic history causing it to be closed off for years from an Oakland ghost ship fire that took 36 lives.
The art is very unique and modern which I enjoyed. There’s no AC in the warehouse which kind of adds to the whole experience. The muggy and creepy atmosphere really makes it an unforgettable visit.
One of my favorite pieces were the large paintings of Asians… they were extremely realistic and we felt like they might pop out any second. Another creepy part was when we went to take a video of these painting we kept seeing a ton of orbs around them! uhhh weird???
Another favorite was the popular pitchfork piece that has been extremely popular on social media! This was much bigger than I thought it would be and it was fun seeing everyone engaging in the piece and making their own stories with it with their photos.
The place is filled with video and media along with some live performances. There were some fun ones where you could interact and see your shadow on top of the video. Overall this place had very unique art and the building just added to it making it one incredible place!
