Painting with Light

The artist Refik Anadol has been turning heads for the last few years with his brilliant, beautiful installations. In late 2018, he was invited to create a projection-mapped installation on the surface of Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the LA Philharmonic Orchestra.

Anadol used machine learning to turn the entire Philharmonic digital archive (45 terabytes) into a stunning visualization, which he projected across the iconic metal skin of the hall. It feels like his approach to creating artwork, using AI as collaborator, is just the beginning of what artists and innovators will be doing in the coming years. In the meantime, enjoy the entire performance of “Dreams.”
