Sensing Change

Finalist 2020
Sensing Change

A new data-driven, dynamic art installation on a terrace in downtown Chicago uses light to draw a connection to nature. Titled “Sensing Change”, the installation is powered by live data feeds creating a unique and ever-changing experience that can be enjoyed both during the day and at night. Standing on a 2nd-floor terrace against an imposing 100’ x 30’ concrete wall, the light trellis was designed to make the space feel more open and organic. Viewable from the street and the building's upper floors, the piece adds a dynamic component to the surrounding neighborhood.
