G2LD worked with Re:Site and MetaLab on this dynamic art installation placed at Houston's Hobby Airport. From a distance, the expansive wall of light serves as a bold and compelling piece of public art. Up close, an interpretive timeline is revealed, which tells the 75 year history of Hobby Airport.
According to the artist, 'The effect of a "timeline in motion" is also made possible by Lumisty, a special glass that is transparent when viewed at certain angles and foggy at others. The foggy distortion creates a motion blur effect with the interpretive exhibit behind the glass.' Color changing LEDs enhance this experience, allowing the piece to seemingly move and change in front of the viewer

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ 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.
