February 16, 2018 - April 15, 2018
Join us in Polk Bros Park from February 17, 2018, through April 15, 2018, to experience Prismatica, a new interactive art installation at Navy Pier presented in partnership with the Quartier des Spectacle and RAW Design. Admission to this exhibit is free and open to the public.
This immersive installation, comprised of 25 pivoting prisms more than six feet tall, transforms 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.
