Krzysztof Wodiczko. The Sky Above Krakow: LGBT Speak Out: Drone Performance on Rynek Główny
25.09.2021 at 8.30 pm – 10 pm
During 24–26 September from 8.30 pm until 10 pm we will present the latest project by Krzysztof Wodiczko – The Sky Above Krakow: LGBT Speak Out: Drone Performance on Rynek Główny.
The project is an artistic attempt to give a public voice to persons from LGBT communities. It takes advantage of drone technology. The drones are equipped with pairs of LED screens and megaphone speakers. The screens display the movement and expression in the eyes of the individuals speaking. Their eyes have been recorded simultaneously with their voice to be synchronically broadcast from the drone megaphone.
This is important because the look in the human eyes reveals, emphasizes, and accentuates the meaning of what is being said. The screens become the person’s eyes and the megaphones become their mouths. The drones acquire the character of human beings.
You are invited to public projections in Rynek Główny in Kraków on 24, 25 and 26 September (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). The projections will take place three times a day: at 8.30 pm, 9 pm and 9.30 pm.
