Madison Square Park Conservancy announced its thirty-fifth exhibition, Whiteout by artist Erwin Redl. Known for his spectacular light projects, artist proposed a luminous white carpet of LED lights across Madison Square Park‘s central Oval Lawn.
Whiteout is comprised of hundreds of transparent white spheres, each embedded with a discrete, white LED light and suspended from a square grid of steel poles and cabling. The orbs will be opportunistic, gently swaying with the wind currents from their positions of two feet above the ground plane. Redl will create a computer-generated undulating wave pattern across the work, slowly forming from north to south and south to north. The sequence of light will be an incandescent treatment of urban public space across the dark seasons of the late fall and winter. – from the artist
