Block Real Estate Services • Kansas City, Missouri
Visitor was engaged by Block Real Estate Services to design and create a conceptual, modern/digital take on the traditional clock tower which is historically recognized as a way of bringing people together with a sense of time and place.
With the goal of creating a generative artwork that is both meditative and informative, Visitor developed a codified language within the artwork that could be meaningfully interpreted by the viewer. The Dynamic Weather Clock serves as an ever-changing spectacle that responds to environmental conditions while also containing art and data-driven symbology that displays up to the minute information relating to current and future climate conditions. This new landmark fosters a sense of community and provides passersby with an evergreen public art display, the Dynamic Weather Clock represents how technology-driven conceptual artworks can enrich public space with both aesthetics and utility.
