“These 3D, immersive worlds integrate light, built sets, projection, and effects. It all adds up to an unforgettable experience — perfect for photos with friends!” says Cole NeSmith, Executive Director of the Creative City Project.

The second version of The Worlds of Corkcicle will appear at IMMERSE 2019 in Downtown Orlando. More than a dozen all new environments will be built inside 8 shipping containers. The containers are modified to open from the side, and the photo experiences will be inside the containers.

“On its own, The Worlds of Corkcicle is a destination experience. But when you pair it with the Architects of Air installation, it’s a can’t miss experience,” says NeSmith.

The Architects of Air is a UK-based group of artists who create large-scale, inflatable installations. The translucent materials the structures are built from create a magical effect of light and color inside.

Both experiences will be at Seneff Plaza at the Dr. Phillips Center in Downtown Orlando on October 18-19 for IMMERSE 2019. They will reopen daily through October 27.

More Interactive Installations Than Ever!

In addition to hundreds of performances, IMMERSE activates the streets and public spaces of Downtown Orlando with tons of interactive installations. This year, all new installations will come to life. For example, how about a maze full of shadow puppets, actors, lights, sound, and effects? It’s not a haunted house… but a journey through a magical world of creativity.

Here are two of our most popular interactive installations. “Dear Citizen O” invited people to write letters to each other through this pop up post office. Flora was an interactive experience that encouraged guests to consider the most meaningful moments of their lives. By the end of IMMERSE, this alleyway was filling with thousands of live flowers.

Below, Orlando Health invites you to use your body to digitally paint on the walls of this giant, 60’x25’ inflatable cube.
