StandardVision was engaged by Block Real Estate to develop a unique generative artwork for their new digital display atop the 46 Penn Live/Work building in the historic Country Club Plaza in the heart of Kansas City, MO. Having seen a number of StandardVision’s future-forward projects, Block was interested in the aesthetic allure of data visualization and generative art. The StandardVision team worked to create a piece that was not only of-the-moment, but also a spectacle that invites participation from viewers on the streets below. To honor and represent the historical setting of the building within Kansas City, the Dynamic Weather Clock was inspired by the concept of a traditional clock tower, which has a unique way of bringing people together with a sense of time and place. With the goal of creating a generative artwork that is meditative but also informative, StandardVision elevated the idea by creating a codified language within the artwork that--once understood--would be able to be interpreted by viewers who could also find something meaningful within it. The Dynamic Weather Clock culminates as a unifying beacon for the town. It serves as an ever- changing spectacle that responds to environmental conditions while also containing an art and data-driven symbology that displays information relating to current and future conditions. By fostering a sense of community and providing passersby with a dynamic public art display, the Dynamic Weather Clock represents how technology-driven conceptual artworks can enrich public space.
