LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2021 — Chris Wink, co-founder of Blue Man Group, announces today the opening of “Wink World: Portals Into The Infinite” at AREA15, the new art and entertainment district located minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.
This horizon-expanding, first-of-its-kind immersive art experience represents Wink’s most ambitious art and entertainment project since departing Blue Man Group in 2017. Drawing upon his well-honed skills as an experience designer, a music composer and overall purveyor of high-impact visual entertainment, the 1,500-square-foot experience takes the entertaining fusion of whimsy, color, art, technology and music he pioneered with Blue Man Group to the next level.
Wink World comprises a series of six infinity-mirror rooms, each one showcasing a stunning production number drawing upon Wink’s love of black light and other dazzling stage effects designed to evoke “life force” and inspire wonder. Wink’s penchant for transforming everyday objects into art or entertainment provides his delightful brand of dynamism to the experience, as ceiling fans transform into kinetic art and children’s toys like Slinkies and Hoberman Spheres become elevated into a chorus line of dancers and entertainers.
“Wink World will be a manifestation of my lifelong fascination with the transcendent power of the playful interaction of light, color and music,” said Wink. “And its location is perfect, as AREA15 was designed especially for experiences like this brand-new, multisensory art and entertainment concept.”
Tickets to enter “Wink World: Portals Into The Infinite” are $18 for adults, $13.50 for children. Discounts are also available for Nevada residents, seniors and members of the military. All prices include ChromaDepth 3-D glasses.
