A Live, Interactive blend of Music and Visuals encompassing the entire front facade and lawn of The DETROIT PUBLIC LIBRARY. Somewhere between concert, historical theatre, opera, and cinema, this project centers on that theme carved above the front entrance. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
As the centerpiece to the 2012 Dlectricity Festival “Knowledge Is Power” débuted to overwhelming acclaim when it was projection mapped onto Detroit’s historic main library. NewD Media was awarded an emerging artist grant from the DTE Energy Corporation to construct a 20-minute narrative journey representing mankind’s roll in the quest for knowledge. From concept to creation this epic story begins at the dawn of man and touches on many of the moments of true discovery and understanding found throughout world history. Months of hard work resulted in a larger than life 3-dimensional cinematic exploration into our past and future, projected on a significant piece of Detroit’s legacy.
