Watch a Livestream Here Tonight and Through the Weekend as David Blaine Has One Million Volts of Electricity Streamed Around Him
ELECTRIFIED: One Million Volts Always On is magician David Blaine’s latest performance, and no matter where you are, you can see it live 24 hours a day. Beginning tonight (October 5th) at 7pm and continuing for 3 days and 3 nights David Blaine, in concert with Intel’s Ultrabook Experience, will go without food, drink, or sleep as he stands in the center of a 44-foot diameter globe surrounded by 1,000,000 volts of electricity streaming from 7 Tesla coils. One of the most interesting parts of this performance is that people all over the world (Intel Ultrabook stations are set up in Beijing, London, New York, Sydney and Tokyo) will be able to interact with the electricity and metallic orbs that stream electricity around the artist via the #ELECTRIFIED hashtag.
David Blaine had this to say about the performance:
“My goal is to create a visual image that everyone will always remember, one that makes people curious and mystified. Intel is giving me the opportunity to perform the most daring thing I’ve ever done and has created a way to bring different people from all walks of life on to a global stage.”
For those in NYC, head over to Pier 54 at anytime from 6pm tonight until Sunday to see the performance in person. It should be best late at night, or even more so on Sunday at 7:30pm when Andrew W.K . plays a one million volt keyboard solo with Blaine.
