The AirFIELD is a dynamic sculpture synched to real-time flight data reflecting the heartbeat of the world’s busiest air travel hub, the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Suspended in the center of the new International terminal, the 90’ long and 30’ wide (27.4m x 9.1m) data-driven art piece comprised of two intersecting sweeping forms evokes the wonder of flight.
To crate an experience which reflects actual air traffic of the world busiest airport. AirFIELD consists of 1,500 circular tiles suspended by 3,000 wires, connected to 81 circuit boards all linked back to a single computer server.The sculpture animates arrival and departure events with a system that uses a fluid-dynamics physics engine to generate dynamic visual behavior.
Three artists collaborated to conceive and design this location based art installation. Over all design, data processing engineering and architectural design.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
