The use of large visual displays in public spaces such as large buildings has become increasingly popular. Public art can make use of the characteristics and context of the site. However, it is difficult to install new displays in existing buildings because of the large, rigid hardware associated with such displays. In this article, we describe a robust, lightweight, low-profile, and fully restorable display system that can be easily and quickly installed for use in existing public buildings. We considerably reduced the number of physical components and the system weight with our proposed method, which can be optimized for any planned content. We describe the technical design and implementation of the display system and discuss some of its applications for public audiences. We then report a three-month field trial that we conducted at an airport terminal building. We discuss the advantages and effectiveness of this system in light of the field trial results.
