Tate will use real-time data to display travel conditions on Ocean's Two Towers West, the two seven-metre high digital screens on the elevated section of the A4 Hammersmith Flyover. Images such as Turner’s ‘The Storm’ will be used to accompany Met Office forecasts of inclement weather.

The campaign, which was created by Liveposter in collaboration with Total Media and Posterscope, won the Creative Techniques category of Ocean’s annual The Art of Outdoor Digital competition, in association with Brand Republic.

Martin McCully was the art director behind the campaign and Christina Edwards and Emma Lamden were the copywriters. All work at the real-time outdoor specialist Liveposter.

Jesse Ringham, the digital communications manager at Tate, said: "Tate Britain’s showcase is a data driven campaign using hundreds of images from our extensive collection to re-engage with Londoners, visitors and international tourists.

"Different paintings, drawn from more than 500 years of British art, are automatically triggered across the two screens according to specific events or conditions such as the time of day, the traffic flow, the weather and flight arrivals."

Dan Douglas, founder of Liveposter, added: "This campaign is a great example of a brand using data sets to create the most relevant copy for the moment and maximise their chance of engaging the audience."

Ocean’s Art of Outdoor competition entries were judged by a panel of industry experts for their innovative approaches, including layering, augmented reality and data streaming.

The 2014 Art of Outdoor Digital competition opens for entries on 30 June.

Tim Bleakley, the chief executive at Ocean Outdoor, said: "This campaign is striking. The link between our screens as a live canvas to showcase the Gallery’s spectacular art collection reflects the dynamic capability of digital out of home.

"The matching of artworks to the out of home environment as it changes across the day is a fantastic concept."
