LIGHT YEAR 18: “Digital Fairy Tales: Album One”

Celebrate Octoberfest with seven brand new, Fairy tale-based videos projected onto the Manhattan Bridge!  Curators Leo Kuelbs and Sandra Ratkovic present “Digital Fairy Tales: Album One,” a free flowing set of visuals + sound pieces inspired by old German tales collected by Xavier Schönwerth in the 19th century.  This presentation of these weird and wonderful tales will bring seemingly ancient archetypal contexts and references into the 21st century.  By creating this bridge through time, “Digital Fairy Tales” will reveal and enliven commonalities of the collective subconscious covering the 150-year period in question and beyond.  Also, through the use of digital media, notions of storytelling are allowed to evolve, just as they have throughout history. “Digital Fairy Tales” is yet another new way to tell some of the oldest stories.

Besides the LIGHT YEAR presentation of “Digital Fairy Tales: Album One” on the Manhattan Bridge, you can celebrate with some of the creative team behind the project at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP.  From 6-9 pm, drinks will be served, the complete show will be screened on their massive, 27 panel LED wall, and a screening will be held in their beautiful screening room with a discussion of the project to follow.  Afterwards, you can have another look at the work on the Manhattan Bridge and see how place and presentation change context.
