This website was created in collaboration with Linked by Air. Programming: Linked by Air and GrayBits. Accessibility consulting: The Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media, WGBH Educational Foundation. The website is an ongoing project of many departments of the Whitney, each of which is responsible for representing its activities and knowledge directly on this evolving surface. It is based on the Economy content management system, built in Ruby on Rails.
A series of Internet art projects commissioned by the Whitney specifically for whitney.org mark sunset and sunrise in New York City every day. Unfolding over a timeframe of ten to thirty seconds, each project accompanies a transition of the website’s background color from white (day) to black (night) and vice versa.
To see sunset or sunrise, be anywhere on this website. Sunset today: 8:11 PM, New York time. Sunrise: 5:34 AM. Time in New York now: 2:44:19 AM.
