An ordered collage of translucent rectangles and circles with a desert color palate wraps the exterior of a parking garage in Scottsdale, AZ. At night, the façade comes alive with an array of computer-driven lights projecting a dynamic panorama of color onto the facade, swiftly changing hues with each passing glance.

 

Lenses is about how we see. At night, the entire surface is a rectangular viewport that moves over iconic images in art history. The surface shows just a portion of each image but moves in a way that makes it possible for viewers to form the complete image in their mind’s eye.
