Blink Cincinnati was a four-day festival that offered large-scale architectural projections and interactive art pieces throughout a 20-block area in Cincinnati from the banks of the Ohio River to Findlay Market in Over the Rhine.
ADEX teamed up with BHDP Architecture to create one of the more memorable experiences in the event. Attendance at the four day event was estimated at over 1 million people.
At the entrance to the Cincinnati Public Library a design for the area was developed based on a storybook theme and focused on one the most popular children’s books, Peter Pan. An illuminated diorama was developed of white layers and light with simple white silhouetted shapes. This allowed the visitor to step inside the storybook as characters emerging from the pages. The book was built on a large scale to create an inspiring affect as the visitor approached. White silhouetted images of plants trees and animals were positioned along the path ways leading up to the book and the library to set the stage for the for the diorama.
