From its obvious history, stellar observatory, intergalactic exhibits, and stunningly evocative sunset-gazing, Houston is known as Space City for a reason. The city continues to live up to its name with Infinite, an immersive, NASA-inspired Virtual Reality exhibition.
Created by Felix & Paul Studios, PHI Studio, and in associated with Time Studios, Infinite has been counting down to launch in Houston for months. And now, space cadets can wander out to Sawyer Yards for an out-of-this-world visionary adventure.
The 12,500-square-foot experience is divided into seven chapters that which include: a life-sized 3D model of the International Space Station; multi-sensory artistic reinterpretation of a lift off; an exclusive audiovisual installation from famed Japanese artist, Ryoji Ikeda; and an “infinity room” mimicking the journey through a wormhole.
Additionally, the exhibition features never-before-seen, astronaut-capture footage from Space Explorers: The ISS Experience, an Emmy Award-winning film producers by the same minds behind Infinite. It was also the largest production ever filmed in space.
The 60-minute, immersive VR and AR-based experience is only open Silver Street Studios in Sawyer Yards until April 17. Tickets are priced at $36; $32 for students above the age of 13; $17 for children between the ages of 8 and 12, $35 for seniors 65 and over, and $30 for military. Children below the age of 8 are not permitted.
