The article describes the Lo Rez Hi Fi lighting installation created by My Studio/Höweler + Yoon Architecture for a building in Washington, D.C. The Lo Rez portion of the work is an electronic sign comprising a pair of two-sided screens made of 10,000 individually controlled light emitting diodes. The lamps are affixed in pairs to tensioned cables placed 2.4 inches apart and suspended between glass panels, etched to diffuse the light. The second component is Hi Fi, a grid of sidewalk-mounted poles that Yoon describes as stalks.
