In light of the Philly Fringe running from September 7th until the 22nd, I decided to share with you one exhibit I’m particularly excited about, and I think you should be too. Famous Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, known for his interactive installations and use of technological media art, will be lighting up our skies with his Open Air exhibit beginning Sept. 20 for the Philly Fringe & Live Arts Festival and will run until Oct. 14, marking the close of Design Philadelphia.
Using 24 robotic search lights that will be set up along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in various locations, being seen from as far as 10 miles away, the Open Air exhibit is sure to attract everyone that sets their eyes on it.
This event, which is free, free, free by the way gets even better because you, yourself can get in on the artistic action. Using a custom-app, admirers and participants alike can use their voices and GPS positions to activate the frequency of the illuminated night sky. Talk about interactive! How awesome is that, huh?! Visit Association For Public Art for more information on this astounding event. It’s sure to be beautiful and breathtaking! Take a walk in the crisp night air and check it out. Also, ask yourself, when was the last time you were invited to participate in a art form that can be viewed from miles away, flickering and moving to the sound of your very voice? Definitely neat!
