150 Media Stream: We The People

Artwork by Thirst

Type Design Taek Hyun Kim and Rick Valicenti

I worked with a team at Thirst led by John Pobojewski on the installation WE THE PEOPLE, a world-premiere commission for 150 Media Stream — the largest multimedia art installation in Chicago. Located at 150 North Riverside, this unique video sculpture features 89 individual LED blades at 150 feet long and over 20 feet high. Thirst joins several announced artists to premiere work for the video sculpture: Jason Salavon, Kurt Kaminski, Megan Pryce/Zhang Zige, Geoffrey Alan Rhodes, and Leviathan.

WE THE PEOPLE is a suite of five scenes, expressing oneness, diversity, and community. Words from the U.S. Constitution are used throughout the piece, as well as 150 first names of those born in America within the last decade.
