Denver Digerati’s Silent Screen initiative provides the ultimate walking tour that reflects how digital animation and motion art can be integrated with LED display technology as a dynamic form of public art. Our six screen locations are located within the core of the Denver Theatre District in downtown Denver.

Musical weirdo and visionary” (Vice) Beatie Wolfe is an artist who has beamed her music into space, been appointed a UN Women role model for innovation, and held an acclaimed solo exhibition of her ‘world first’ album designs at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Wolfe’s latest innovation is an environmental protest piece built using 800,000 years of climate data to visualise rising CO2 levels which was unveiled at the Nobel Prize Summit, London Design Biennale and the United Nations Global Climate Conference COP26.

For this year’s Silent Screen, we want YOU to submit your work to be shown on one of our public LED screens, all of which feature a non-traditional format. Feel free to think of this topic broadly in the ways in which most resonate with you. We will match you with a screen where you will create works formatted to this unique exhibition opportunity.

Activating Environmental Awareness asks each of us what we can do in this age of climate crisis where vital planet-saving messages are getting lost in the noise and onslaught of daily news, social media and notifications that the digital era has created. With everything occupying this same superficial stream of information that infiltrates our day-to-day lives, bombarding our sensory systems until we are numb, overloaded and fatigued, how can anything imprint? Art has the power to cut through and communicate complex messages that can open up our hearts and minds, activate awareness, and inspire action on a large scale.” — Beatie Wolfe

Your proposal should include 2-4 visual samples as aesthetic references, a brief statement about the concept you are proposing, and a little about your overall art practice.

All works to be considered for Silent Screen must be suitable for general public viewing and will be shown without sound. Artists may choose to produce accompanying sound for online presentation and reference purposes. All final works will be limited in duration with a minimum of 45 seconds to a maximum of 2 minutes.

Visit our Silent Screen Format page to learn more about the six screens we activate in this public art exhibition and to submit your proposal.
