Closing Celebration: Lairs of Self in Everyday Life

Friday October 17th: 6:00PM - 10:00PM
Ticket Price: $10 - $25

DesignPhiladelphia proudly presents, Lairs of Self, the closing program for the Festival's 10th anniversary. Designers Sean Martorana and Dejha Ti have created an immersive installation - an imaginative integration of projection mapping, filmed design experiments, and interactive elements. 360 degree video projections wrap onto the colossal walls of the 5,000 square foot Crane Arts' Icebox, and appear precisely on a 12 foot, one ton sculpture made of Dupont™ Corian®. (It's not just for counter tops anymore!)

In this multidisciplinary exhibition, a team of 20+ designers, animators, video mappers, programmers, industrial designers, fabricators, musicians and a dancer elegantly converge to create a singular experience. Custom-designed, interactive kiosks allow you to become part of the installation.

Interacting via mobile devices, you can directly influence immense projections and simultaneously share your contributions on Twitter. The massive sculpture and Icebox walls display intricately mapped projections of designs and animations reflecting copywriter Adam Teterus' words. The sensory experience is completed by music produced by internationally renowned musician Tim Motzer.

Enjoy sweet delicacies from FRIEDA. Cash bar.
