About UrbanScreen :
UrbanScreen uses high-powered data projectors to illuminate the entire west wall of the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre with imagery generated by computers. Since its launch in 2010 as the Public Art feature of this recreation facility in Surrey’s City Centre, the Surrey Art Gallery has curated and partnered with artists and organizations to present a rotating program of exhibitions and events at UrbanScreen during an annual season that runs from September to May.
Artworks shown have been created using technology as diverse as the virtual piano, gaming engines, unmanned aerial video copters, and generative image and video databases, with interactive works using text messages to change content, the gyroscope and accelerometer of mobile devices to create movement, and the motion of SkyTrains and the tidal levels of the Fraser River to trigger the presentation and performance of the artworks. To find out more about past exhibitions, visit surrey.ca/urbanscreen<http://www.surrey.ca/urbanscreen>.
Beginning 30 minutes after sunset and ending at midnight, UrbanScreen is seen by visitors to the Recreation Centre and adjacent Youth Park, as well as SkyTrain passengers travelling between Gateway and Surrey Central stations (30,000+ people daily).
