Co-founder of Blue Man Group introduces Wink World at AREA15 Las Vegas

Chris Wink, co-founder of Blue Man Group, announces the opening of Wink World: Portals Into The Infinite at AREA15.The attraction opened to the public on Jan. 7, 2021.

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 unique production number drawing upon Wink’s love of black light and other stage effects designed to evoke “life force” and inspire wonder. Wink’s penchant for transforming everyday objects into art or entertainment provides his special 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. “I’m delighted to introduce everyone to 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. Locals with Nevada ID pay $14.50 for adults and $11 for children. Discounts are also available for seniors and members of the military. All prices include ChromaDepth 3-D glasses.
