2006 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
The "Wind Window One" project will be a monumentally scaled, interactive public artwork. The project was recently selected and contracted for construction as a permanent installation by the lead art consultant for the new West Expansion of McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. This building expansion is currently under progress and when completed is slated to be over 2.3 million square feet large, visited by over a million people per year, and is centrally located in the downtown Loop area. Wind Window One (VW\JO) will have a very prominent location at McCormick - to be both viewable from the street as well as from the interior. The Wind Window One installation is designed in a site-specific manner to appear to "float" inside the eighty foot tall "glass box" location to which it has been designated.
