Merit Award 2018

DAZZLE began as a regular public art commission through a competitive process in 2015 and evolved into a research project for the adaption of e-paper technology as an innovative dynamic material for exterior use on an architectural scale.

The resulting solar-powered 1,600-foot long artwork by Ueberall International facing the Pacific Highway comprises 2,100 custom developed e-paper panels that display animations remotely controlled via a wireless network.

Inspired by a fool-the-eye camouflage technique dubbed 'dazzle painting' that altered the enemy's perception of WWI Allies' ships, artists Nik Hafermaas, Dan Goods and David Delgado are using custom-developed digital technology to create DAZZLE — a monumental public art installation along the 1200-foot long façade of San Diego's new airport rental car center. Thousands of autonomous one foot by two foot "pixels" will animate the installation.
