Erwin Redl »Whiteout«
Madison Square Park, New York (US)
November 16, 2017 – April 15, 2018

Madison Square Park Conservancy is proud to announce its thirty-fifth exhibition, »Whiteout« by artist Erwin Redl. The project features a luminous white carpet of LED lights across Madison Square Park’s central Oval Lawn.

»Whiteout«, a newly commissioned public art project by artist Erwin Redl (Austrian, *1963, lives and works in Ohio and New York City, US) is comprised of hundreds of transparent white spheres, each embedded with a discrete, white LED light and suspended from a square grid of steel poles and cabling. The orbs will be opportunistic, gently swaying with the wind currents from their positions of two feet above the ground plane. The white LEDs are animated in large-scale patterns superimposing a virtual movement on top of the kinetic movement of the spheres. The sequence of light will be an incandescent treatment of urban public space across the dark seasons of the late fall and winter.
