Denver Digerati began developing protocols for the integration of digital animation and motion-artwork with outdoor LED displays starting in 2010. Supernova now employs Denver’s unique LED screen infrastructure. Programming is featured on multiple screens, located within a 6-block radius in the heart of the Denver Theatre District, providing a magnificent display of animation for Supernova. On Saturday, September 19th, five of Denver’s LED screens will be activated from noon through 8pm with digital animations looping throughout the day. These works will be presented without sound as the festival’s Silent Screen Initiative. Over 20 artists from around the world submitted proposals for the opportunity to create animations unique for this format. Silent Screen enhances the attributes of the program and presents a now rare opportunity for the public to safely and responsibly view exceptional art outside of their homes. Denver Digerati provides the ultimate walking tour that reflects how digital animation and motion-art can be integrated with LED display technology in a purposeful, invigorating manner.

Supernova’s Silent Screen program animations will be available to the world through Supernova.video on Thursday September 24th beginning at 6pm, with sound in most cases.
