Opening October 15, adventurers of all ages are invited on a journey to a massive otherworldly forest that responds to touch, sound, and movement. This expansive exhibition is home to hundreds of bioluminescent sculptures and unique interactive installations created by the newly formed Bay Area-based collective Numina Studio.

This captivating immersive art experience invites visitors on a journey of exploration within the galactic ecosystem of planet Nocturne X, a 4000-square-foot interactive forest filled with surprising stories and hidden puzzles. Hundreds of glowing plants, designed and hand-sculpted by the team at Numina Studio, create a landscape brimming with life as the interconnected vegetation responds to touch, sound, and movement. With the use of A.I. and other custom-built technologies, this multisensory installation transports visitors through space to an awe-inspiring unknown world.

By day, the interactive playground invites attendees of all ages on a self-guided expedition of cosmic discovery. At night, the environment transforms into a premier event space available for private rental, complete with dance floor, DJ booth, and enveloping music visualization, with each extraterrestrial flora in the forest responding to music and motion in its own unique way.

“Nightfall” begins October 29 – Come see Nocturne X in a completely different light with Nightfall! Starting October 29, dance the night away on a journey through space-time with our weekend night programming just for adults. Come see this expansive exhibition light up with live DJ performances, immersive theater experiences and more. Grab a drink and reunite with friends under Nocturne X’s eight moons and immerse yourself in something new. Tickets range from $30-60.

With over 100 artists working alongside world-class hardware and software experts, Numina Studio creates genre-defying experiences that blur the lines between storytelling, technology, and the arts. Come with curiosity to explore, discover and unravel the unforgettable story of NOCTURNE X.
