Day 97 – Joyful Living Project


My friends Perry and Michael took me to this mesmerizing light and sound show.

One of the most recognizable buildings in Downtown Los Angeles—the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall—will be used as a canvas starting this Friday, but creators have already done a few test runs.

Celebrating the start of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s new season, colorful patterns will be projected onto the metallic surface of the wavy concert hall for a little more than a week, courtesy of artist Refik Anadol. The piece is called “WDCH Dreams.”

Forty-two high-powered projectors will work together to create the images that will temporarily transform the concert hall’s iconic exterior nightly.

Artist Anadol took images, audio, and videos from the philharmonic’s archive and transformed the material into data points.  He then reinterpreted as colorful and dynamic patterns using the Artists and Machine Intelligence program at Google Arts and Culture, which crunches the information into data points that then become new material for the artist.
