The YouTube Theatre created by artist Aaron Jones is revolutionary in the field of audio-visual media and takes the movie watching experience to new heights with a level of personalization unseen in the digital world to date. As DesignBoom describes the theatre's process, “Visitors can dock their smartphones into the structure itself, which uses basic
audiovisual equipment to project online media and videos browsed on the device onto a large screen.”
It was initially seen on the campus of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, but it will find a permanent home on the site of an abandoned garage in Detroit, Michigan. The Aaron Jones YouTube Theatre is just the beginning of the personalization of social media on a large scale. The ability to watch something completely different than the person sitting next to you on the big screen will certainly make for an interesting movie date!
