"Moment 537" was a site specific installation in the windows of Weisacres and the Emily Harvey Gallery at 537 Broadway in New York in April 2015.
A custom made linear lighting fixture was installed on the ledges of each of the second and third floor windows of this classic (and storied) Soho building. The work was visible only from the street.
The fixtures were constructed specifically to project onto the building's classic window detailing. Each contained a linear strip of cold-white LEDs (not blue, as they appear in the video) and were individually linked to a geiger counter to flash each time a particle was detected.
I am grateful to Cathy Weis Projects for sponsoring this installation and to the Emily Harvey Foundation for agreeing to the use of its windows.
