Light/Time Wall, Queens West 3, Long Island City, NY

Last year we completed a new light sculpture for the lobby of Queens West 3 in Long Island City, NY. Light/Time Wall” is a dynamic color changing grid composition with an underlying time telling function. It records time on a daily basis according to the color of the sky. The time telling function of the artwork is accomplished by several means:

  • animation within specific areas indicate second, minute, hour, and week
  • night/twilight/sunrise/sunset indicated by color of minute pixel
  • season indicated by color of month bands
  • perimeter band at top and bottom indicates day of the week
  • visual chime on hour and half hour
