The digital simulation displayed on a 28 by 24 foot frameless LED wall re-creates a Nevada solar thermal power plant and surrounding desert landscape in a compelling virtual world that changes in real time throughout the day. Installed on Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza from October 3 through December 1, Solar Reserve marks Gerrard’s first major public art work in the U.S., as well as his most ambitious installation to date. Gerrard’s work was selected by the Lincoln Center Art Committee chaired by Peter Kraus with guidance from Lincoln Center’s Curatorial Advisory Working Group.
