Interactive art installation OPTIK debuts at Avenida Houston July 4

August 29, 2023

Event Admission

General Admission Showcase Tickets: $30 VIP Showcase Ticket: $55 Afternoon Workshop Tickets: $55

This summer Houston First Corporation (HFC) will welcome an exciting new feature to its entertainment and convention district with the installation of Optik, which debuts Tuesday, July 4 at Avenida Houston.
Optik is an interactive installation that reflects on our ability to play with our surroundings while giving the opportunity for brand new point of views on our daily environment. It provides a unique platform for users to manipulate at free-will how they want to see the world.

The ten 6-foot gyroscope-like forms with, at the center, a dichroic film, offer new ever-changing opportunities that reflect any ray of lights during the day while refracting the inner rings lighting at dusk. As the audience rotates each unit, they create their own endless cascade of colors. The experience is raised to another level as sound joins the rhythmical effort, turning each unit into a different musical instrument.
