Charles Atlas' site-specific projection is an approximately eight-minute piece, broken down into 1-minute chapters, which each feature a characteristic combination of abstract shapes and numerals. Chapters begin with a splash of color that starts at the base of theMART's façade and rises to the top of the turrets, animating and exploring the structure and architecture of theMART.
"I am very excited to be working with Art on theMART on my first public art commission," said Atlas. "In my recent installation work I have been working at a large scale, but never at nearly the scale of the Chicago piece, which is inspired by and in response to the architecture of the façade of theMART. The projection represents a continuation of a tendency of some of my recent video work towards pure color and abstraction."
