Ecoarttech, Untitled Landscape #5 at Sunset | Sunrise/Sunset

Nov 12, 2009

Sunrise/Sunset is a series of Internet art projects commissioned by the Whitney specifically for whitney.org to 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. At sunrise and sunset, fluctuating orbs of light disrupt the “digital landscape,” and the information environment of whitney.org is disordered by ecoarttech’s visuals, suggesting a natural phenomenon.
