Dawn Chorus and Speculations by Sarah Meyohas

Jul 15Sep 12Top of the RockFree with Top of the Rock purchase

Experience Dawn Chorus and Speculations by artist Sarah Meyohas in an immersive and interactive art installation at Top of the Rock from July 15 –September 12, 2022.

Free to all Top of the Rock ticket holders.

Dawn Chorus is a musical augmented reality experience that delights viewers with holographic birds fluttering around a physical player piano. The birds and watercolor visuals engulf the piano, triggering a series of musical notes only visible through an augmented reality headset.

Speculations will be displayed on the 69th floor north terrace overlooking Central Park. These works, created through the manipulation of physical reflective surfaces and water, portray perspectival tunnels extending into infinity.

Sarah Meyohas (b. 1991, New York) is a conceptual artist and pioneer in the field of crypto art, whose practice considers the nature and capabilities of emerging technologies in contemporary society. In 2015, Meyohas created Bitchcoin, a cryptocurrency backed by her physical artwork. Predating the launch of Ethereum, Bitchcoin is the first tokenization of physical art on a blockchain, effectively a “proto-NFT.” Using the familiar emblems of biological life, Meyohas investigates the complex operations that increasingly govern our world: soaring birds, created using augmented-reality software, flock in unison with the frenetic variations of the stock market; rose petals, aggregately identical but individually unique, comprise the dataset for their AI-created equivalents; Bitchcoin, a cryptocurrency backed by physical artworks, questions the speculative value of cryptocurrency and the ineffable value of art. Meyohas creates an intelligible visual language to articulate the systems and technologies that increasingly influence our world.
