150 Media Stream

Video Installation

Situated in the lobby of 150 North Riverside, Chicago’s exclusive new commercial tower, a stunning video canvas of more than 3,000 square feet serves as a dynamic digital sculpture for tenants and visitors alike. Dubbed 150 Media Stream, the permanent installation features commissioned works by both established and budding artists from across the globe.

To avoid excessive repetition of contributed artworks, Leviathan has designed an intelligent content library that will continually transform over time and empower 150 Media Stream’s curators with maximum visual flexibility. Using generative algorithms to heighten originality and relevance, the system is programmed to address seasonal, monthly, weekly, daily and even real-time considerations.

These tools, combined with a robustly-built scheduling system and rotating imagery from other commissioned artists, ensure views of the installation remain visually enticing throughout every moment of the day. Such an innovative enhancement gratifies current tower inhabitants, attracts desirable new tenants, and even shares art with the public.
