150 Media Stream is a multi-faceted achievement in art, architecture and technology that celebrates the transformational power of media art as collective experience. Divided into 89 blades that stretch over 150 feet long and reach 22 feet in height, the installation is the only structure of its kind dedicated to showcasing Chicago artists, culture and history alongside renowned and emerging artists from around the world.
Riverside Investment and Development hired me to design a mural for the wall. The original brief simply requested a city scene. I decided to focus on celebrating the diversity and culture in Chicago by adding some of my favorite places and characters to the wall. The final piece will be animated by Zhang Zige. More documentation to follow the opening April 22nd 2017.
