Daniel Canogar, a Madrid-based visual artist, recently unveiled his first permanent piece of public art in the U.S. Waves, a suspended 24-foot sculptural LED video installation in Houston, Texas, echoes the flow and constant current of people walking through the atrium daily.

The video display content is the result of a public-participation performance, a signature method of the artist. 90 workers and tenants of the building complex, as well as passersby, performed over a green-screen surface while being captured by Canogar’s over-head video camera. They were first asked to crawl, and then encouraged to be creative. They danced, ran and cartwheeled. The result is a dynamic video animation featuring the building’s residents and workers and the local Houston community in both realistic and abstract forms.
