For the past 3 nights and 3 Nights David Blaine has stood surrounded by 1 Million Volts of Electricity in New York for a performance piece called ELECTRIFIED. The volts were generated by the public who controlled the direction and intensity of the light and sound emitted by the telsa coils through Intel Ultra Book devices in stations in New York, London, Beijing, Sydney, and Tokyo along with the use of the #ELECTRIFIED hashtag.
Andrew W.K.(in the video above and interviewed after the jump), POP ETC, HEALTH, Gavin Russom, Prince Rama, WINWIN, and Javelin along with Pharrell, Darren Aronofsky, Rachel Weisz, Chris Rock, Woody Harrelson, Jonathan Cheban, Jemima Kirke, Harmony Korine, the Cults, and Alicia Silverstone all participated in the experience at Pier 54 in New York City.
