On February 22, 2016, Samsung opened 837 Washington, their flagship playground in the heart of New York City's Meatpacking District. Guild commissioned Michelle Higa Fox to create a digital piece for the 32' x 30' screen wall inside the experience store.
Landfall 10.29.12 uses hand-painted digital waves and data from NOAA's Hudson River tide gages to visualize the rise and fall of the Hudson River's elevation between 2 PM and 2 AM on the evening of Hurricane Sandy's storm surge. The art follows the water as it rises almost ten feet to flood 837 Washington Street. As the piece follows the river to its 14-foot high point, the animated waves rise higher and become more turbulent.
