First Phase- 10 up & 15 more pictures coming up

Probably many of you noticed, we are happy to report that 10 pictures were installed in the last two months. We are going to install 15 more pictures in May and June for Main St.

It is so beautiful to see and wonderful to watch everyday. This is something that I dreamed about for years and finally it became reality. I think no one can deny that the pictures have made such a big difference in the appearance of downtown. We would like to thank all photographers who found beauty in Rochester.

If we want to make Rochester a city everyone can be proud to live in, every one of us should make a small difference, little better, everyday. If we’ll keep doing that, years from now, Rochester will become a destination where many people love to visit. We would like to be a part of it.

You can see more picutres here and walking map here.

What's in the Photomosaic? PDF Print E-mail

Many people have asked me where were their pictures are located in the Photomosaic or if there is a way to see them closer. I used to only be able to answer them by recommending they bring an some binoculars to the site and take a look! But now you can see inside the Photomosaic, here on this website. Click on the picture below. It will open a new window where individual photos will pop up where you point with your mouse. You can then click on it to see a larger picture. This is a lot of fun. It's made possible by our new web hosting which gives us quite a large space, 600GB! Enjoy!

What's in Photomosaic?


Times Square Changing Environments 2007 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 09 July 2007 13:34

Based on an Interview with Ken Sato. July 9, 2007.

This fall, the north face of the Times Square building is getting a facelift.

The Times Square Building Changing Environments project of 2007 has the theme of "Atmospheres and Changing Environments." The above picture is one of Ken's photo renditions of a potential candidate photo (Photo by Irving Patterson. CG by Kenichiro Sato).

It likely will be a vinyl mesh wallscape, like the format of the Photomosaic of 2006. However, unlike that project, the medium is not going to be a photomosaic. This gives us a wide flexibility in terms of photo subjects and color composition. For example, imagine a giant panoramic photo of a large redwood forest, even larger than the huge advertisements of the "Times Square" in NYC. Upon first glance, the sheer size of this photo might make you think you are in the forest yourself! Then picture yourself passing by this beautiful wallscape every day. At the least, it should brighten your day; moreover, it will hopefully change your attitude.

If it is big enough to change your view of the immediate surroundings, think about how it might change your daily life.

Estimated size: 160 ft x 60 ft (about 4 times bigger than the Photomosaic of 2006!). At this proportion, it is practically a panorama in itself. It will be impossible to miss. Take a look at the lower left corner of the picture to see how small the car appears next to the sample picture.

This is going to be a future landmark for Rochester, NY.

The projected debut is September 2007, at 45 Exchange Blvd.

Take a look at our test run photo at 74 St. Paul Street, the historic HH Warner building across from the Photomosaic.

The test photo is small example; actual photos will be bigger in the Downtown Wallpaper Project.

Here is the map of the location. 74 St. Paul Street is the home of the Renaissance Art Gallery, a gorgeous art gallery with all original pieces of art made all by local artists of the Rochester Genesee region. Please stop by to view their collection.
