2017 _ Sunrise / Sunset Haiku Engine - Whitney Museum - Arport - New York - US
Sunrise / Sunset Haiku Engine - Visually and verbally translates the sky above the Whitney Museum using the names of the Dutch Boy house paint colors as a haiku engine generating site-specific poetry for day and night.
Sunrise / Sunset is a series of Internet art projects commissioned by the Whitney specifically for whitney.org to mark sunset and sunrise in New York City every day. Unfolding over a timeframe of ten to thirty seconds, each project accompanies a transition of the website's background color from white (day) to black (night) and vice versa.
Christiane Paul, the Whitney's adjunct curator of new media, notes: “What distinguishes these projects is that they use whitney.org as their habitat, disrupting, replacing, or engaging with the museum website as an information environment. This form of engagement captures the core of artistic practice on the Internet, the intervention in existing online spaces.”
