GoPixelYourself (GoPixelYourself.com), an ‘Instagrammable museum’ creating an experience for all ages, has extended its stay at CambridgeSide (CambridgeSide.com) into 2021. GoPixelYourself will reopen on Friday, February 12, 2021 with a limited engagement highlighting Galentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day and other surprises.
GoPixelYourself presents a 12-room immersive experience including a 747-jet ready for flight, a virtual blizzard of snowflakes, a glittering “bling room”, a chance to be a Pop Star and more. Created by Parker 3D, GoPixelYourself is the next generation in the selfie-museum genre and features never-before-seen enhancements including 12,000 square feet space with 4,000 square feet of ever-changing animated digital video wall. Automated cameras deliver animated movies, GIFs, and selfies to each visitor. Every guest receives a website link to download photos and videos of their experience.
GoPixelYourself hours of operation are Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 per person and can be purchased at GoPixelYourself.com.
The experience is designed with safety in mind. All visitors schedule their own private groups of up to eight people with pre-reserved times. Every guest receives a non-touch fever check upon entry. Additional safety procedures include hand sanitizing stations, cleaning after every group, touchless cameras, social distancing protocols and more.
“We are excited to welcome guests back to GoPixelYourself.com at CambridgeSide,” says Melissa LaVita, Senior Marketing Director of CambridgeSide. “GoPixelYourself offers a safe and fun place to visit. It’s the perfect way to spend a winter day; come shop, dine and play at CambridgeSide,” she adds.
Headquartered just outside New York City, Parker 3D creates worldwide digital video installations throughout North America, Asia, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. The Parker 3D team has worked directly with Jeffrey Katzenberg to develop a series of DreamWorks multimedia experiences and has delivered Warner Brothers experiences with augmented reality apps for Christmas Story, Elf, and the Polar Express.

Parker 3D is led by John Carter, a former Bostonian who has been known for street art, giant art installations, TV appearances, and art furniture. Local fun fact: Die-hard Bostonians may remember Carter’s Tile City commercials from the early 90s, featuring the dancing, singing Bill the Tile and Shirley City. Carter created metal graffiti along with Johnny Swing and JJ Veronis that was featured in media worldwide including FOX, NBC, Asahi Network Japan, Fuji Network Japan, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Fast Company, and more. Mr. Carter was cited by the New York Times Magazine as one of the artists most likely to change culture. Parker 3D technical director Carson Williams is best known for his own house which he featured in a video light show synchronized to the music of Trans-Siberian Orchestra; the home appeared on the Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and was the star of a Miller Light commercial.
