An exciting new interactive installation is about to join the already astounding array of public art pieces in Chicago.
Inspired by solar and planetary movements, the temporary piece SOLSTICE has been created by Montreal-based digital art studio Iregular will be installed on Navy Pier next week where it remain open to the public free-of-charge for six weeks.
According to the press release, SOLSTICE will invite visitors to take control of the environment around them. “After activating a giant spinning globe, participants pick their path through a series of doors, each creating a distinct array of glowing light and sound” it reads.
“Whether energized by the mind-bending challenge of an ever-changing puzzle or wrapped in esoteric contemplation of parallel dimensions, visitors will be captivated by this one-of-a-kind immersive experience.”
Founded in 2010, Iregular creates audiovisual installations, large-scale sculptures, architectural projections, and scenographies, with a focus on interactive and immersive experiences.
Fusing art and technology, previous installations by Iregular have experimented with geometry, light, sound, typography, mathematics, algorithms, communication protocols, AI, and machine learning.
SOLSTICE will be revealed on Wednesday, March 1 at 11 am on Navy Pier where it will remain through 7 pm, Sunday, April 16, 2023.
