Commissioned as an integral and permanent component of the new
Unicorn theatre for children on London’s South Bank, Underworld is an evolving yet permanent new media artwork. It takes the form of a LED screen that is embedded into the floor of the Unicorn’s foyer. The
imagery of Underworld is algorithmically generated, rather than animated
and shows a continuously evolving urban environment. Rendered
cinematically in real-time according to mathematical instruction and
parameters, the cityscapes will evolve in a way that is governed by
principles extracted from competing twentieth century theories of urban
design and town planning.
Placed just over one meter below the floor constructed from 24 tiles of
Barco ILite 6 MD making a total area of 3.58m x 1.34m.
