Ah, the welcoming sidewalks of Detroit. The blood had washed away in the rain, but the spray paint remains to remind you.
Mark and I went down to midtown Friday night to check out the Dlectricity festival. What a blast!
My personal favorite, Velociplosion is a tangible bike explosion in space, by Chidester and Malek.
Let’s Dance at MOCAD, where you could dance, warm up, drink, and eat cotton candy. Let’s Dance by Olsen.
Work by Moffett.
These lasers shooting out of the Charles H. Wright Museum were by Mattern, and looked especially great in the rain. The raindrops caught the laser light so you could see the beams.
Whale by Oliver was an ever changing painting of a nearly life-sized frolicking whale.
This was also exceptional, Dolefullhouse was an animated projection of hands filling a doll house on the back of the Detroit Institute of Arts.
This is only a small sampling of all the craziness going on, I hope Dlectricity comes back every year!
