A year ago today was wndr's last day as a pop-up installation in Chicago. Did you have the chance to visit us during that time? We are so thankful for each and every one of you who showed your support and allowed us to remain in Chicago permanently, as an ever-evolving immersive art and technology experience. We will continue to reimagine the traditional museum experience, focusing on interaction and experience over simply viewing. We look forward to you visiting wndr museum again soon. ✨ #wndrmuseum

The health and safety of the wndr community is our highest priority. As such, the museum is temporarily closed as we work to thoroughly and thoughtfully respond to the escalating impact of COVID-19. We plan to reopen on Wednesday, May 6 but will continually evaluate the situation taking into account guidance from the State of Illinois, City of Chicago, and the Centers for Disease Control.

Please take care of yourselves, your families, and your communities.

Remember when listening to music required a portable CD player? LANDS is a newer installation at wndr that features sounds from scratched and faulty CDs played through vintage "discman" audio players. An interactive component allows guests to activate, combine, and process the glitching sounds via interface kiosks. We cannot wait for you to experience it for yourself!

LANDS was created by Olivia Block and Stephan Moore who make up the collective SONDE. Both local Chicago educators and composers, they have their hands in performative and interactive installations all over the world.

Who are your favorite artists/ writers?
My favorite artists are Mac Miller, Kaytranada and Playboi Carti. My favorite writer is Emilio Salgari.

What makes you a hero?
I don’t think anything makes me a β€œhero”, but being there for anyone who needs help, being reliable and a good friend is as close as I can get to being one.

Tell me about your favorite interaction at wndr?
I recently helped a large Cuban family into the museum and it was very enjoyable to speak with them in my native Spanish, explaining what the museum was all about and making them feel welcome.

What drives your ambition?
My ambition is driven by the desire to succeed and reach the goals I put on myself, like getting my education in my second language, getting my citizenship and having a good work ethic.

How long have you been at wndr?
I’ve been at wndr since October of 2018.

What is your favorite room?
The Infinity room by Yayoi Kusama.

Who are your Favorite artists/writers?
I prefer images over words, the stories you create are left to your own interpretation. Favorites range from Gustav Klimt to Lina Iris Viktor to Bisa Butler.

What makes you a hero?I'd like to think I'm a good listener. Anyone who can take the time to share in someone's happiness as well as woes is an unforeseen gift that keeps on giving. Tiny acts of kindness goes a long way. Remember that!

Tell us about your favorite interaction at wndr?
A 5-yr old wndr patron showing a hearing impaired toddler how to navigate the Ames Room. The temperamental tot was having no instruction from any adult but the young boy gingerly took the tot's hand, placed him in the right spots, and showed him what to do for the photo. Children teaching children. I couldn't give him enough praise.

What drives your ambition?
I have an irrational "I can do that!" mentality. I want to challenge my so-called limitations and surpass them. I just need to prove it to myself. We can be our own worse critic sometimes

Who are your Favorite artists/writers?
Some of my favorite authors are Nikki Giovanni, Kurt Vonnegut, and bell hooks.

What makes you a hero?
It's the little things! I try to give a helping hand when I can. I really appreciate those interactions when someone goes out of their way to help me so I hope every now and then I can brighten someone's day.

Tell me about your favorite interaction at wndr?
One of my favorite interactions was talking with a kid who had just studied Yayoi Kusama and was excited to see her infinity room. He loved it!

What drives your ambition?
Creativity is my primary driver. I love the process of coming up with something new or solving a problem. At the end of the process, I get to see what I've created and plan to make different choices next time!
