Nocturne X is a massive multisensory art & tech exhibition that responds to touch, sound, and movement.
Prepare to be transported to a mysterious alien planet called Nocturne X, complete with glowing plants, surreal landscapes, crystal caves, awesome music, and more! This unbelievable artistic experience promises a mystical art exhibition by day and a psychedelic dance floor by night.
The massive 4,000-square-foot ecosystem is completely interactive, meaning you can explore hundreds of hand-sculpted plants and trees. The glowing vegetation is full of surprising stories and puzzles, and the interconnected landscape responds to touch, sound, and movement.
Local arts nonprofit Gray Area hosts this exhibition created by Numina Studio, a 50-person art/tech studio that connects artisans, tradespeople, and tech experts. Nocturne X is the studio’s first major exhibition, and they’re coming in with a bang by using cutting-edge technology for a one-of-a-kind storytelling experience. Dozens of sculptors, fabricators, metal and woodworkers, sound and light designers, and more worked tirelessly to bring this 4,000-square-foot mystical forest to life.
Tickets are now available to see Nocturne X. Visitors of all ages can enjoy the exhibition by day in a self-guided expedition.
The space is also hosting Nightfall on Nocturne X. The nighttime series boasts a 21+ concert space with a paid bar, dance floor, DJ booth, and 360-degree music visualization.
“So many immersive experiences out there feel closer to aesthetic sets you can stand in front of and take selfies,” says Numina Studio’s co-founder and artist Shlomo Zippel. “For Nocturne X, we saw this huge opportunity for artists to leverage technology to craft a world that really invites the audience to engage with it. The entire team worked hard to ensure that Nocturne X really feels alive and I’m proud to say that it truly stands apart from other immersive experiences across the country.”
