600 Fairbanks - Lincoln Schatz

600 Fairbanks - Lincoln Schatz

For this project, Lincoln Schatz created a multi-perspective generative video work that examines the development of 600 North Fairbanks, a Helmut Jahn-designed high-rise tower, from its first incursion into the ground, through construction, and into its emergence onto the Chicago skyscape. Approximately 18 months of video layers from four cameras mounted on and near the construction site comprise the database for this new media artwork. Between the massive database and the software complexities, it is statistically improbable that the video combinations will repeat.
