Whale #2

Public art

‘Whale #2’ is public art that transforms the 1,400-square-meter billboard screen in New York's Times Square into a 3-dimensional undulating ocean environment occupied by a whale freely riding the waves. It creates a hyperrealistic scene where an enormous whale rendered in water element swims and blends into the waves within a confined space. By presenting engrossing art to the public in the midst of involuntary exposure to a myriad of advertising and light pollution, the work suggests a moment of freedom from a sleepless city.

iF GOLD STATEMENT

The Whale is a hyper-realistic ocean wave in the form of a giant blue whale that was looped live in Times Square. This installation redefines the category of digital art by creating a format that forms a blueprint for future digital narrative experiences in public spaces. What was once projected as the future of digital advertising in science fiction movies has become a reality.
