As well as being able to watch all the action unfolding live in the atmospheric outdoor surroundings, the public will be able to interact and chat with David using Intel Ultrabook satellite stations.
ELECTRIFIED will involve Blaine standing on a 20-foot-high platform at Pier 54 in New York, surrounded by seven towering metallic orbs – or tesla coils – that will stream 1 million volts of electricity around him for 3 days and 3 nights.
Clad in a custom-made metal suit and helmet capable of conducting millions of volts of electricity, Blaine will be on his feet and will not sleep or eat for the duration of the performance.
Between the hours of 9pm and 10pm, the UK public will be able to control the actual 1 million volts of electricity and movements of the Tesla coils around Blaine, using Ultrabook stations as interactions are streamed live on the big screen.
ELECTRIFIED will be streamed live on an outdoor wall at Ely’s Yard (between Hanbury Street and Brick Lane), between 7pm and midnight.
