MTA Arts & Design Debuts New Digital Artwork at Fulton CenterMTA Arts & Design has installed a new digital artwork at Fulton Center by Brooklyn-based digital mixed media artist Anne Spalter as Arts & Design expands its audience by presenting new, innovative digital work to MTA customers.
Titled New York Dreaming, the new digital artwork is a meditation on the city and the constant self-realization of its physical and psychic existence. New York is a city like no other, a combination of man-made and natural formations, perpetually evolving and reinventing itself–turning from one year to the next, unfolding. Its citizens, similarly, are dreamers, driven to bring their visions to life.
Filmed and transformed high-resolution footage of iconic New York skyline imagery into psychedelic, algorithmic kaleidoscopes digitally developed using custom software, New York Dreaming will bring to commuters’ daily journeys a sense of meditative wonder deriving from the sky-high perspective of the work’s source footage. With a longstanding incorporation of transportation and the Modern Landscape in Spalter’s artistic process, Fulton Center is an apt backdrop for New York Dreaming.
The mesmerizing video loops air simultaneously for two minutes at the top of each hour on a large-scale 52-channel video installation in the Fulton Center 2 Subway3 Subway4 Subway5 SubwayA SubwayC SubwayJ SubwayZ Subway station complex and in the Dey Street pedestrian tunnel that connects to the R SubwayW Subway lines, where it will be displayed during the holiday season and into the beginning of 2017.
“Anne’s kaleidoscopic digital work featuring the skyline of New York City shown in the dynamic canvas of Fulton Center complements the geometry and volume of this great public space,” said Sandra Bloodworth, Director of MTA Arts & Design. “The juxtaposition of light, color and pattern is mesmerizing.”
The work is presented by MTA Arts & Design with technical support from Westfield Properties and ANC Sports.
