Noa Younse’s The Ant Ensemble is a physical demarcation that slices through the landscape of Socrates Sculpture Park. For his installation, Younse positioned unique wooden markers along the directional line of New York City’s North-to-South avenues, creating a spatial and volumetric boundary that is further emphasized by illuminated points positioned on each unit. The static order of the cardinal minimalist line contrasts with the playful expressiveness of the animated illuminated components. The computational techniques the artist employs to program this animation generate a visual effect that pivots between night and day, visible and invisible, and fundamental order and chaos.
