DLECTRICITY™ was scheduled for September 22 & 23, 2017, in Midtown Detroit and showcased 36 artists from Detroit and around the world from the DIA to MOCAD. Please check back often as we continue to share photos and video from the festival.
LOCATION: The Cathedral Church of St. Paul
Nikola Dicke has developed a unique technique of drawing with light for which she uses a soot-blackened glass on a special 7000 lumen overhead-projector. Dicke seemingly draws directly on the site, the wall, hill, tree, surface on which the drawing is projected, using the surface as her canvas. In this real-time process the viewer doesn’t only perceive an artwork but, by interacting with Dicke while draws, is part of its creation. Dicke’s light-drawing is performance, painting, sculpture all in one work.
