For the Beacon Bus Shelter Project, Philippe Safire created two panels entitled nightcolors. Designed with colorful lines of pixels, these images reflect the fast pace of the digital age as well as the ephemeral passage of people in the streets. The artist wanted the artwork to blend into the movement of the city whether the viewer is walking or driving by. Safire constructs a pixelated world on the screen which merges into the physical space.
