Most of us lean towards order, schedules and rational(ized) decisions.

But a little chaos never hurt anybody.

Enter: The 14th Factory, a spankin' new and unmistakably chaotic interactive art exhibit so big it’s hidden in an abandoned warehouse north of DTLA.

The 14th Factory is the vision of conceptual artist Simon Birch. He’s working with 16 other artists for an interwoven experience that includes video installations, performances and visuals that span from pint-sized to the entire factory floor.

To wit: a meteor crashing to earth in a freeze frame explosion, a car flipping over itself and a giant replica of The Barmecide Feast that was featured in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Tickets are on sale now for the March 11th opening, and the show runs through the end of April. You’ll notice from the map that it’s north of downtown, so maybe explore a little more mayhem in Highland Park afterward.

Go ahead. Live a little.
