Discovery Wall

Commissioner: Weill Cornell
Location: Weill Cornell Medical College, Belfer Building, New York
Status: Completed January 2014
Photography: Miriam Sleeman

A large scale digital media wall that combines nano screen digital technology with microscope lenses, creating sensational optical effects whilst at the same time show casing information about the building: Weill Cornell’s branding identity; its departments; cutting-edge research; the medical discoveries taking place; donor recognition; news and events.

The artwork operates on three main perspective view points.

1. Far views display ‘macro’ images and text
2. Mid views display ‘mezzo’ layers of additional information
3. Up close views display ‘micro’, detailed levels of information

The discovery wall was designed and developed in collaboration with Squint Opera and Hirsch&Man.
