Commuters and residents saw and heard animated images and sounds come and go as the SkyTrain passed by Surrey UrbanScreen.

This interactive public artwork created by Aleksandra Dulic and Kenneth Newby (Flicker Art Media) was activated by passing trains, and its imagery references the diversity of those travelling by transit in the Lower Mainland.

Unlike other large outdoor screens, Surrey's UrbanScreen often incorporates a soundtrack into its imagery. Ambient and orchestral sounds of raindrops, gamelan gongs, prepared piano notes in a John Cage style (based on the emotions of the rasa Indian tradition) were heard when tuned into the artwork at FM 89.9 on car stereos or MP3 players.
