To avoid excessive repetition of contributed artworks, Leviathan has designed an intelligent content library that will continually transform over time and empower 150 Media Stream’s curators with maximum visual flexibility. Using generative algorithms to heighten originality and relevance, the system is programmed to address seasonal, monthly, weekly, daily and even real-time considerations.

These tools, combined with a robustly-built scheduling system and rotating imagery from other commissioned artists, ensures views of the installation remain visually enticing throughout every moment of the day. Such an innovative enhancement gratifies current tower inhabitants, attracts desirable new tenants, and even shares art with the public.

150 Media Stream is a multi-faceted achievement in art, architecture and technology that celebrates the transformational power of art as collective experience and explores the interplay of art, space and viewership in both public and private contexts.

During regularly scheduled “artists’ moments,” residents and visitors come together to experience media art displayed at a grand scale, as 89 LED blades stretching 150 feet long and rising 22 feet high ignite into light, color, and movement. Developed in partnership with Chicago’s premier arts, culture and higher learning institutions and private supporters, the 150 Media Stream is an international platform for both rising and established Chicago, US and global media artists.

The installation also features competitively selected collaborative works by exceptional art educators and students through its groundbreaking media arts program, ensuring a truly representative cross-section of Chicago’s diverse arts community.

 

Located at 150 North Riverside Plaza in Chicago, the 150 Media Stream is the only structure of its kind dedicated to showcasing Chicago artists, culture and history alongside renowned and emerging artists from around the world.

      Public art commission for 350 Mission Building in City of San Francisco, California
      S|N|A manufactured and installed a high-resolution LED video wall at 350 Mission Street in San Francisco. The state-of-the-art 6 mm LED display was unveiled to the public during a digital art show organized by owner Kilroy Realty Corporation. 

      The LED video wall was installed as part of a new office tower developed by Kilroy Realty. The 30-story high-rise is located on the north corner of Fremont and Mission streets in San Francisco’s newest business district. The building is adjacent to the site of the Transbay Transit Center.

      Public Unveiling: Digital Art Show
      Kilroy Realty and the City of San Francisco commissioned acclaimed media artist Refik Anadol to create an immersive public art installation on the LED canvas for the unveiling event. Anadol's work was titled "Virtual Depictions: San Francisco." The show included a series of parametric data sculptures telling the story of the city and the people around San Francisco within a unique artistic approach, according to Anadol's site.

      "I'm very, very satisfied," said Anadol about the unveiling event. "Having a dynamic artwork and real-time data sculpture concept was a stress on the creation side, but in the end it fit perfectly for the City of San Francisco. This is the first time I have used such a high-end system."
      Almost 7 Million Pixels
      The high-resolution LED screen is part of S|N|A’s indoor S|Video™ line of high-end video products. It features a 6 mm pixel pitch, meaning the center of each pixel is only .24” inches from the center of an adjacent pixel. At 38’7” high by 68’6” wide, the installation consists of 2,643 square feet of digital canvas.

      The interior LED display wraps around a 90-degree lobby wall corner. S|N|A designed and manufactured a custom corner module for the project, providing in a tight seam at the turn. The display includes 1,960 pixels high by 3,480 pixels wide including the side wall. The resolution of the lobby wall display consists of 6,820,800 pixels.
      Open-Ended Software System
      A huge benefit of the S|N|A display system at 350 Mission, where various artists and content managers will provide digital content, is its flexibility  and compatibility with a wide range of software products.

      “For the project, I needed to create a custom software and hardware setup in order to achieve some complex real-time graphics,” said Anadol, a lecturer at UCLA’s Department of Design Media Arts. “And the system was designed completely open-ended for possible creative inputs. It was extremely easy and user-friendly.”

      The LED display system is capable of displaying 4K content natively, but the screen can also be segmented for a variety of looks and purposes. It can play a combination of animations, video, imagery and live data simultaneously. The system includes an audio component as well. S|N|A designed and installed speakers throughout the lobby floor that work in concert with the video content. S|N|A partners Analog Way and Visual Image Display were instrumental throughout the project, including system visualization, engineering, and hands-on support during installation.

      ‘Virtual Depictions:San Francisco’ is a public art project by media artist Refik Anadol consist of series of parametric data sculptures that tell the story of the city and people around us within a unique artistic approach for 350 Mission’s media wall in collaboration with Kilroy Realty Corporation / John Kilroy and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP Architects.
      The main idea of ‘Virtual Depictions:San Francisco’ is to bring 21st century approach to public art to define new poetics of space through media arts and architecture and to create a unique parametric data sculptures that has an intelligence, memory and culture. Through architectural transformations of media wall located in 350 Mission’ lobby, home of Salesforce, main motivation with this seminal media architecture approach is to frame this experience with a meticulously abstract and cinematic site-specific data-driven narration. As a result, this media wall turns into a spectacular public event making direct and phantasmagorical connections to its surroundings through simultaneous juxtapositions. The project also intends to contribute to contemporary discourse of public art by proposing a hybrid blend of media arts and architecture in 21st century.

      New Year’s Eve 2017: SGM Q-7 strobes were the main cannons of the stage lighting for Justin Bieber’s exclusive show at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, FL.
      Everlast Productions have carried out the New Year’s Eve Party at Fontainebleau Hotel for several years. It was the first year that Tyler Frank spearheaded the overall design. Tyler and his crew took the shell of the structure from previous years and incorporated that into the new design for the stage. He wanted to create something that had more depth, immersion and dynamics, all the while fitting into the tight restrictions of the space. They built a 18m wide x 15m tall x 13m deep (60’ wide x 50’ tall x 40’ deep) structure and stage over an existing poolside bar. The lighting design had to be practical, bright and resilient to South Beach weather conditions. He explained why he chose the Q-7s for the stage setup:
      “The Q-7s were the main cannons for the show. They were the only fixtures that I could trust to fill in the void between the LED walls and to have a output bright enough to make it across the pool. The Q-7s were going to be out in the open to the elements and so the IP-rating and the durability of SGM was a no brainer. The fixtures acted as bookends to the LED wall and really brought synergy between the lighting and video elements.”
      Tyler was very satisfied with the performance of Q-7s from SGM:
      “The Q-7s set the bar for a LED strobe fixture. It’s a tank and can handle anything you throw at it. I didn’t have a single issue with these fixtures, whereas I had several with others due to the rain. The Q-7s are now in my bag of tricks - and I will definitely use them again.”
      The Everlast Production crew had no idea who the headliner was going to be until a few weeks beforehand, so they focused on creating a large canvas that could support any act. Once they found out that it was Justin Beiber, they got in touch with his team to make any changes. Fortunately, they loved the rig and rocked with what Everlast Productions had provided them. The Lighting Designer from Justin Bieber's team, Nick van Norstrand, took the rig and made it fly.
