Public Art

Livestream - Public Works Collaborative


Livestream, a transmedia public art installation commissioned by LexArts and LexingtonFayette Urban County Government's Department of Environmental Quality and Public Works (DEQ), is a product of DEQ's EcoART program. The EcoART program was created to educate the public on environmental issues through artistic creation. This is located at Jacobson Park.

Livestream combines art, science, and technology to raise environmental awareness by engaging children and adults alike in the sustainability of one of our most valuable resources: groundwater. The public art installation translates groundwater data from across Kentucky into an interactive soundscape. The sounds were composed by Lexington native and renowned cellist, Ben Sollee and play based on one's proximity to the pipes.

Public Works Collaborative consists of founder and designer, Kiersten Nash; musician, Ben Sollee; engineer, Sean Montgomery; artist, Bland Hoke; educator, Dan Marwit; and contractor, Jon Pope. The project is in partnership with the Kentucky Geological Survey and has the support of LexArts and the Department of Environmental Quality and Public Works.

Additional support was provided by Dixon Electric, NetGain Technologies and Windstream.
