Overview

Got Any Jacks? touches more than a dozen walls of Terminal D at the Miami International Airport. This suite of sculptures is comprised of 500 fiberglass fish replicas. In Lipski’s words, “You have two experiences in an airport. You are rushing through and hardly see anything. Or you are stuck here and have hours to kill. To try to come up with something to serve both of those situations is challenging and
I love that.”

Goals

Got Any Jacks? greets travelers as they arrive and showcases the local ecosystem of sea creatures found in Miami in an abstract format that creates patterns through out the terminal that can be enjoyed as travelers pass through or further examined if time allows.
