The Optic Cloak is an innovative power plant chimney design that brings awareness to large corporations using clean energy with an oscillating Moiré design. The Moiré creatively covers the chimney's surface to make it look as though the chimney is in constant motion and shifting continuously throughout the day.

The design for the chimney is put together by artist Conrad Shawcross that hails from England. The design is 160-feet tall and features a glittering glass covering made from geometric shapes. As the light pass through the glass, the chimney appears to be in flux. The constant movement of the Optic Cloak is a commentary on the Greenwich Peninsula power plant's Low Carbon Energy Center mission to provide clean energy to residences in the area.
