Edyta Stepien | Most Visual – Creative Director and Marrakesh TKesh Creative – Producer partnered with Gettys Group design team to create a 25 minute permanent video installation on the facade of the Renaissance Hotel in Chicago. Evolve is one of the five videos making up the entire video content. The hotel, located at the southwest corner of State St. and Wacker Dr. has undergone a massive and cutting edge renovation and the video wall was a part of the redesign of hotel entrance.

The process began with a series of storyboards created by Edyta that ultimately became the basis of the installation. The overarching narrative starts from particle visualization as the city is built up from elements. The downtown area is entered through a moving 3D camera POV. There is a vibrant constant movement that showcases the architecture in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. The elements solidify and familiar slices of downtown appear. The river walk area and the theater district are hinted at and ultimately fused into the experience of exploring the city.
