DLECTRICITY is Detroit’s nighttime festival of art + light that featured over 35 world-renowned and emerging artists whose cutting-edge works of art illuminated Midtown Detroit in 2014, from the Detroit Institute of Arts down to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. This two-night “Nuit Blanche” festival was scheduled for Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27 in Midtown Detroit from 7:00 p.m. to midnight. Saturday night also featured the DLECTRICITY Light Bike Parade where thousands of cyclists biked a 4-mile route through Midtown Detroit, adding extra light and energy to the streets. Weekend programming also included artist talks and performances. DLECTRICITY is produced by Midtown Detroit, Inc. and is free to the public.
Perception is a powerful force. It can sway us to create or to destroy. To enhance or inhibit. To dream and dare or to sit in judgement. We rely on our own perceptions to decide which road to walk down, which path in life to follow. Where do they originate? What influences me one way and you another? Can we look for clues that point us to the origin of these conclusions? How these judgements were formed? What evidence strengthened our resolve? Was it something in particular, or rather, someone? P.O.V. explores these questions by following two characters on a journey through influence, culture, exposure and perspective – telling the same story, from two points of view.
