Thousands of LED screens create Discovery Wall for NYC medical college

Thousands of LED screens create Discovery Wall for NYC medical college | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Biomedical research centres aren’t renowned for creative enterprise – why should they be – but across the pond one New York organisation is bucking the trend with a stunning new digital artwork. The Weill Cornell Medical College commissioned London-based creative agencies Squint/Opera and Hirsch&Mann to produce theDiscovery Wall for its new Manhattan premises and the results are super-impressive. The final piece comprises 2,800 LED screens set behind a bank of lenticular discs. For passers-by it can be viewed as a large-scale digital artwork but up close the screens display content that relates to the college’s pioneering scientific research.

'Inkscapes' installation livestreams iPad drawings across a 120 foot display (VIDEO)

'Inkscapes' installation livestreams iPad drawings across a 120 foot display (VIDEO) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

"Inkscapes" is a sprawling installation that turns tablet doodling into something more profound. Created by Adrià Navarro and DI Shin, the system streams live iPad drawings across a giant, 120-foot-long display, located inside New York's InterActive Corps building. The result is a hypnotic, undulating mural that's equal parts painting and performance.

As Navarro explains, the piece's contours are determined by three artists, each drawing simultaneously on an iPad. Their sketches are scaled up and streamed in real-time on the 11-foot high video wall in front of them, which is composed of 568 LED screens at a combined resolution of 11,520 x 580 pixels. At certain points, some of these screens flicker on and off, creating a glitchy aesthetic, while others fade into gray, distorting or gently swallowing the superimposed sketches.
