Skyline, 2014

LEDs, aluminum, acrylic, micro controller, transformer.</br> 1x137 inches, 24 minute loop.

A colored, vertical strip of light is mounted to a wooden pillar, facing east and reaching the whole length from floor to ceiling. It shows the changing gradient of the eastern sky through the course of a day and night. The narrow band of light represents the view of the sky as I perceive it when framed by towering buildings in downtown Chicago. The data of the sky’s colors is collected beforehand and displayed in a 24min loop. The nighttime makes the strip go dark for a while before it lights up again in bright day colors.
