Newt Miami: Experiments in Light, Color & Sound (“NEWT”), is a public art installation that uses the 19-story LED wall of an iconic building in the downtown skyline, the InterContinental Hotel, as a digital canvas for performative architecture.
Inspired by Isaac Newton's theory that every primary color correlates to a musical note, NEWT is comprised of motion graphics synchronized to live orchestral performances of original music composed specifically for the experience.
Integrating mobile technology into this installation, audiences watching the building from afar can listen through their web enabled devices to the synchronized musical score. Every image and sound combines to evoke a heightened sensorial experience, and in turn bridges audiences through a shared experience that’s part site-specific, and part mobile.
The immersive art experience was enhanced by pop-up events, performances and creative talks at local galleries and spaces in the Downtown Miami area.
