Pasadena's AxS Festival kicked off Friday night with a whole lot of lasers and bubbles. Or as artists Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand have dubbed it, "10,000 Peacock Feathers in Foaming Acid." It's one of many performances being staged over the next two weeks inside of the festival's centerpiece, Sphaerae, an inflatable, multi-sensory pavilion. Elsewhere during the curious art and science fest, you can catch choir performances, high-tech talks and the Machine Project Field Guide to the Gamble House, a reimagining of the Pasadena bungalow. If you missed out on this weekend's artsy eye and ear candy, there's plenty more to come through the festival's close on October 5.
Check back throughout the fest to see more of our photos.
