MTA unveils digital signage artwork at Fulton Transit Center
MTA Arts & Design, a digital artwork provider for the Metropolitan Transit Authority, recently unveiled its fifth digital signage artwork entitled Skyyys at the Futon Center Transportation Hub in Lower Manhattan. Dave Greber created the piece of digital art by displaying kinetic objects such as balloons and stuffed animals to represent the "constant stream of visual information that we all experience daily," according to the press release.
MTA Arts & Design plays the Skyyys artwork for two minutes on 52 displays throughout the Fulton Center complex and the Dey Street pedestrian tunnel. The Fulton Center itself synchronizes 44 LCD video walls, according to the release.
"Dave's fun and inventive digital work featuring objects often associated with childhood and play gives additional dynamism to the mixed use elements of Fulton Center — its myriad shops and this vital transportation hub," Sandra Bloodworth, director of MTA Arts & Design, said in the release. "The energy and mixture of colors, stuff and patterns are simply joyful."
