Art Institute displays its works of art in LED
Cleveland Institute of Art recently installed an LED mesh video display to the front facade of its building.
The transparent facade screen displays the works of Cleveland Institute of Art students in static and moving images.
The screen is constructed from a stainless steel metal fabric mesh which has the LEDs embedded into it, this gives it a transparent look and makes it an integral part of the buildings architecture. It is hardly noticable externally when switched off and can let natural daylight through to windows behind the screen and allows people to see out through it.
It has the facillty to show dynamic full colour static images and video content to great effect.
In most cases of mesh installations the screens are used for advertising and promotions but in this instance the Institute was focused on using the technology as a communication channel between the institutes students and the public showcasing important pieces of artwork whilst providing an iconic addition to the building.
