Thousands of elaborate hand drawn, hand cut pieces of paper will be projected with a flashlight, combined with the silhouetted band to create a low-tech psychedelic puppet-goth spectacle.

Usually this condition occurs when the art is especially beautiful, or if a large amount of art are gathered in one place.
