Grand Lobby

Luminous, connected, resonant


For this third major public art commission at the Moss Art Center, Daniel Canogar (Madrid) has created a site-specific sequence of dynamic, data-fed sculptural forms. Surge encompasses thousands of flickering LED lights in moving, ever-changing, computer-generated abstract images that glide across four sinuous, ribbon-like sculptural elements.

Responding in real time to incoming data—ranging from internet traffic at Virginia Tech and energy consumption in the Moss Arts Center to regional wind speeds and temperatures—the generative visuals of Surge flow continuously across four walls.
