When: February 17, 2018, through April 15, 2018
It’s an art installation
Prismatica, a new interactive art installation at Navy Pier is presented in partnership with the Quartier des Spectacle and RAW Design.
Trip the light fantastic
This installation is comprised of 25 pivoting prisms more than six feet tall, transforming Polk Bros Park in Navy Pier into a giant kaleidoscope. The prisms are made of panels laminated with a dichronic film that transmits and reflects every color in the visible spectrum, varying with the position of the light source and the observer. The prisms are mounted on bases containing projectors. As guests wander among and manipulate the prisms, they will enjoy an infinite interplay of lights and colorful reflections. As the prisms rotate, a variable-intensity soundtrack comprised of bell sounds will play.
At least they’re trying
You have to give the “cheesy mall- by-the-sea” credit for it’s innovative ideas to get people (maybe other than tourists) over there.
