TRANSFIX, the world’s largest touring immersive art experience, is pleased to announce its inaugural edition, launching this April on the Las Vegas Strip at Resorts World Las Vegas. TRANSFIX will present over 50 interactive, kinetic, illuminated, and fire-breathing artworks by international artists across a 200,000 square-foot multi-level venue. TRANSFIX will open to the public on April 21, 2023, and will run through Fall 2023. Following its Las Vegas residency, TRANSFIX will roll out globally, with plans to tour across major US cities and abroad.
Designed to be an experience unlike any other, participants are invited to embark on their own 90-120 minute journey through a two-acre labyrinth. The venue, which is located on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, includes 10 artist-designed bars and speakeasies, and provides a thrilling environment for guests to have a unique night out on the town. Tickets will go on sale March 15, 2023, and begin at $59.
Artworks range from monolithic, shapeshifting kinetics, mesmerizing tunnels, and mind-melting video installations to large-scale fire-breathing sculptures, ocular and sonic landscapes, and hidden lounges and speakeasies. Participating artists include Christopher Bauder & KiNK , Marco Cochrane, Foldhaus Collective, Kate Raudenbush, Christopher Schardt, Playmodes, HOTTEA, Kevin Clark, and many more.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with TRANSFIX and for the opportunity to bring such a unique offering to our guests,” said Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas. “This experience will truly elevate and redefine the immersive experience approach, and we cannot wait to welcome our guests and visitors alike to this never-before-seen attraction.”
Through a myriad of live experiences encompassing art, light, sound, and video works alongside music, food, beverage, and retail offerings, TRANSFIX aims to build future art experiences that foster a global creative economy, form a strong community, and support innovative art and artists of all backgrounds, while encouraging participation and inspiring personal creative discovery. TRANSFIX is co-founded by experiential entrepreneurs Michael Blatter and Tom Stinchfield.
“Our aim is to elevate and redefine ‘immersive.’ We believe that interacting with art at this large of a scale can change the world by illuminating one mind at a time. If we can inspire even a fraction of our guests to restore their childlike wonder and curiosity—or explore their own personal creativity and expression—we’ve done our jobs well,” said Tom Stinchfield, TRANSFIX Co-Founder and CRO.
“Over the past two years, we’ve carefully built out the TRANSFIX business model by placing artists at the forefront of what we do. Our goal is to change the way that artists receive recognition and compensation for their work. We founded TRANSFIX to create a platform that funds artists of all backgrounds to develop new large-scale artworks that would have never been realized otherwise, and we’re thrilled to present it with the world,” added Michael Blatter, TRANSFIX Co-Founder and CEO.

TRANSFIX ART INSTALLATION HIGHLIGHTS
— Marco Cochrane’s “R-Evolution” | Cochrane is a self-taught sculptor who creates epic scale art with the intention of sparking ideas, conversation, and action. Best known for his large-scale sculptures of women intended to de-objectify women and challenge viewers to see past the sexual charge typically associated with the female body, Cochrane will present R-Evolution, a monumental sculpture standing over 45 feet tall and weighing 32,000 pounds. It is the third sculpture in a series depicting San Francisco area dancer, Deja Solis, and is Marco’s only kinetic sculpture to date containing 17 motors. The figure stands strong in her power and breathing, radiating her own humanity. The artist’s intent is to inspire everyone to take action to end violence against women, allowing both women and men to live fully and thrive.
— Christopher Bauder & KiNK “Axion” | Christopher Bauder, an artist working in the fields of light-and installation art and media art and creator of Berlin’s multidimensional space DARK MATTER together with composer KiNK, electronic music’s most known “dynamo”, will present AXION, a large-scale outdoor experiential art installation. With its grid-like arrangement of light tubes and moving lights, from a distance the installation resembles a giant scientific device for space exploration or particle detection. But once the visitor steps inside, it is a reflection on the potential of axions, dark matter, and the idea of the unknown. AXION is a hallucination taking shape, a flowing dream of light and sound that meanders through the night.
— Kate Raudenbush’s “As Above, So Below” | Raudenbush is a New York-based artist who has established herself as a prominent figure in large-scale art since 1999. Her contemplative environments, which she creates by combining sculpture and architecture, often comment on the perils and potential of humanity. As Above, So Below is a 25 foot indigo and mirrored pyramid that acts as a gathering space inspired by the fractal icosahedron of the mathematician Sierpinski. Its reference to the fractal nature of reality, together with its reflective interior, welcomes all to a futuristic refuge to converge and contemplate the infinitely large and small worlds that make up our reality.
— Pablo González Vargas’ “ILUMINA” | Founder of the renowned collaborative project Mayan Warrior, Gonzalez will erect ILUMINA, a 37-foot tall interactive light and sound sculpture that invites participants to take part in an immersive three-minute long meditation, in which biometric sensors are connected to each participant and translated into data that powers the lighting design and moving soundscapes of the structure.
