The “Time/Light Wall” by Matthew Tanteri Showcases Time As Art Featuring MediaGlas™

FAIRFIELD, NJ (April 26, 2016) – The “Time/Light Wall” featuring Galaxy Glass & Stone’s exclusive MediaGlas™, is a dynamic, color changing grid composition with an underlying time telling function. The “Time/Light Wall” records time on a daily basis according to the color of the sky. This luminous media wall met several project specific challenges, including the ability to occupy a large wall area in a high-end lobby, provide site specific media function (time telling), and create an exciting visual display that only glass and LED can provide via MediaGlas™. The time telling function of the artwork is accomplished by several means:

  • Animation within specific areas indicate second, minute, hour, and week
  • Night/twilight/sunrise/sunset are indicated by color of minute pixel in hour block
  • Season is indicated by color of month bands
  • Perimeter band at top and bottom indicates day of the week
  • Visual chime on hour and half hour

The artwork uses an original floor-to-ceiling display system that combines a number of technological advancements in optical films, glazing lamination and low resolution LED display including MediaGlas™. Galaxy Glass & Stone’s MediaGlas, is a highly customizable line of Architectural Glass products designed specifically for use with Traxon & e:cue LED lighting and controls. The content of the artwork was integral to its conception. It was developed over a one year period and finalized in situ over a two-day period.

Also enclosed are high resolution images showing various times of day as displayed on the “Time/Light Wall”.
