We’re thrilled to introduce the latest iteration of Sunrise/Sunset, launching this evening. goodmorning goodnight by JODI explores visual and textual representations of the sun’s trajectory in an online environment. The project premieres tonight at 5:52 pm (EST) on whitney.org.
Overlaid on a grid of latitudes and longitudes of the area surrounding the Whitney Museum are location-specific images of sunsets and sunrises culled from Panoramino, a photo sharing website. Viewers can follow the sun’s visual path in different locations around Manhattan superimposed with text via livedash.
JODI (Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans), or Jodi.org, started pioneering Web art in 1994. Based in the Netherlands, they were among the first artists to investigate and subvert conventions of the internet, computer programs, and video and computer games.
