Ddf Under The Cut says
Engage your playful side at anytime on 9/26!

Programmed in partnership with the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy, DDF Under the Cut will debut five large-scale installations inspired by the theme of "play" from designers all over the world. Installations will be on display Sept. 26-Oct. 10 on the Dequindre Cut Greenway.

Featured installations include:

---- Pulsar Party by Anya Sirota + Jean Louis Farges for Akoaki from Detroit, MI
An experiential architectural soundscape that simulates a cosmic environment using lightweight metallic geometric flares.

---- Lazermaze by George King Architects from London, United Kingdom
An architectural installation formed from three miles of wool dyed with UV ink.

---- Swing Dequindre by LAAVU, from Detroit, MI
An installation of swings will be installed to bring out the inner child, laughter and joy, with a sail that captures wind, and creates a peaceful ‘whoosh’ sound, when activated.

---- DKPP - Drop Kick Push Pull by U. Sean Vance from Ann Arbor, MI
A pop-up play area that is interactive and utilizes demountable mobile objects to create a game that encourages physical activity.

---- Pinwheels - donated by Skidmore Studio
A vast field composed of hundreds of pinwheels of all shapes and sizes.

Renowned South African artist, Nick Cave, will be bringing his wearable sculptures to the Riverfront for a performance called Heard•Detroit starting at 4pm. As a partnership between Cranbrook Art Museum and The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, the project will feature a procession of as many as 30 life-size horse sculptures, creating a contemporary visual experience for the public to enjoy.
