Philadelphia-based Klip Collective will have an amazing 3D video projection on the facade of the Detroit Public Library. Their project “The Librarian” will bring a parable for the Information Age, an interactive story projected onto the facade of the Detroit Public Library about a chaotic shift for a librarian that unfolds for observers through x-ray viewers.

Bluewater Technologies’ “Luminaria Magna” is a massive 25’ by 25’ square lightbox structure connected to pressure pads on the dance floor, turntables and other interactive elements that each control a different characteristic of the light. Local DJs will perform as festival visitors dance and engage with “Luminaria Magna” to create a unique display of energy efficient LED light.

Carole Harris is a fiber artist, working primarily in the art of quilt medium. Her work has extended the boundaries of traditional quilting. Her process is improvisational. She lets the fabric and color lead her on a rhythmic journey, using combinations of commercially printed cottons, silks, linen, hand dyed, hand painted, vintage fabrics and paper thrown in. These materials are cut up, overlaid, hand stitched, burned, painted, repositioned, until she knows that she has arrived at her destination of a densely layered composition. Her work is included in many private and institutional collections and has been exhibited extensively worldwide. free

Robocop! The Musical

Wed., Aug. 23, Thu., Aug. 24, Fri., Aug. 25 and Sat., Aug. 26

The 1987 sci-fi cult classic RoboCop is already pretty campy, with its tongue-in-cheek look at a corporate-run future dystopia and stop-motion robots. How could it possibly get any campier? Simple: Make it a musical. Robocop! The Musical re-imagines the story of quite possibly the world's most well-known cyborg crime fighter, featuring a live house band performing originals like "Armchair Nightmare" and "I Don't Know (How To Love A Robot)." $20+
