NEW YORK—When the New York Times moved into its new Renzo Piano building on West 41st Street in Times Square, the design for the dynamic art display in its lobby was still underway. Two years later, “Moveable Type” was unveiled. The media installation captures the contents of the Times in fragments across 560 mini screens using a specially designed program.
