7. Knowledge is Power
Knowledge is Power, A spectacle that is both concert and cinema, this state-of-the-art theatrical display will illuminate the Woodward facade and lawn of the Detroit Public Library, centered on the nominal theme carved above the front entrance. Main showings will include original compositions from live musicians, with an ambient interactive interface available for the remainder of the festival.
Projection-mapped 3D animation, dynamic optical illusions, and dimensional cinema tell the human story of knowledge by bringing the face of our Library to life in mythic scale. From Cave Painting to Ancient Greece; the tragic destruction of the Library of Alexandria to the invention of books, the dawn of electricity, and the rise of the Internet.
Showtimes for the main projection performance with live music are Friday night at 9:20 PM, 10:40 PM, & 11:40 PM; Saturday night at 9:20 PM, 10:40 PM, 11:40 PM, 12:40 AM & 1:40 AM.
Ambient projections and DJs will be ongoing throughout the evening, with interactive iPad displays at times. DJ Ataxia spins Friday 9:40-10:40 PM, DJ Octiv spins Saturday 9:40-10:40 PM.
