An immersive experience by multimedia artist Jen Stark is coming to Williamsburg. From September 17 through October 24, visitors can experience Stark’s colorful dreamworld Cascade through interactive mind-bending projections, 3D-mapped environments, murals, and sculptures presented across 6,000 square feet of exhibition space at the William Vale Hotel in Brooklyn, New York. Cascade will also introduce a series of NFTs available for auction, as well as $STARK coin, a social token promoting community involvement in the artist’s pursuits.
To bring her hypnotic visions and sacred geometries to life, Stark collaborated with a team of highly skilled computer programmers trained in augmented reality and projection mapping. As visitors walk through Cascade’s portal gallery and waterfall room, they will be enveloped by kaleidoscopic environments suffused with kinetic, undulating patterns that showcase the artist’s signature drips and alien forms.
Throughout the duration of the exhibition, select animated projections featured in Cascade will be minted as NFTs and auctioned online. Stark’s “Multiverse” NFT auctioned for 150 ETH ($343,071) in March of this year, with the sale catapulting her onto the leaderboard as the first female artist in NFT platform Foundation’s top 10 highest selling creators. She is partnering with Rally.io to launch the $STARK coin at Cascade, holders of which will have exclusive access to a gated Discord community, a custom social media avatar, and virtual studio visits. $STARK coins can be purchased with a debit or credit card, cryptocurrency, or by converting $RLY tokens, Rally’s default currency, into $STARK coins. Powered by the ethereum blockchain, Rally.io is an open network dedicated to fostering vibrant independent economies between creatives and fans.

Cascade was organized and produced by Art Market Productions in association with United Talent Agency and Joshua Liner Projects.
