Designed to respond to the unique faceted geometry of the Rental Car Center, DAZZLE, by Ueberall International, is a monumental public art installation that transforms the structure into a dynamic mural. The artists drew inspiration from a form of ship camouflage used in World War I that was intended to alter the perception of ships to the enemy by visually scrambling their shapes and outlines. The artwork uses ground-breaking, sustainable technology to present animations that travel back and forth across the 1600 linear foot façade to evoke water ripples, moving traffic, dancing snowflakes and shifting dazzle patterns.
