From dusk to dawn, the underpass is illuminated by 23 projectors shooting 345,000 lumens out onto the beams of the underpass, mapping out the custom created art produced by highly regarded and Boston based visual artist, Zebbler.
Inspired by a local flower store, Zebbler’s animation entitled “City Bloom” grew from a single projection to a building-wide video texture over the course of the last year. With verdant bursts of flowers, vines and branches slowly growing over the concrete underpass of the Government Center Garage, City Bloom is designed to bring an illuminated spark of joy to Boston, with its animation playfully exploring the boundary between a static fine art installation and a VJ performance.
Given our current climate, this installation will be made available as a “drive through” art installation where viewers are encouraged to drive, bike, or walk through the underpass to experience this epic art piece in person.
