Sunrise/Sunset: Internet Art Projects

In 2009, the Whitney began commissioning Sunrise/Sunset, a series of Internet art projects to mark sunrise and sunset in New York City, every day. Unfolding over a timeframe of ten to thirty seconds, each project forms a visual and interactive intervention with the website itself. Sunrise/Sunset is curated by Whitney Adjunct Curator of New Media Christiane Paul and implemented by the Museum's Digital Development Department. 

To see Sunrise/Sunset, be anywhere on this website during sunrise or sunset, New York time.
