Nuee de verre (Veil of Glass) is an interactive lighting installation consisting of a series of coloured, transparent triangular panels suspended from the ceiling of the new international jetty. The coloured panels animate the space, projecting their multi-hued reflections and refractions, aided by multiple light sources, onto the ceiling of the terminal. The multiple sources and variations in intensity impart dynamism, transforming the ambience of the terminal through colours and movement keyed to the pace of human activity in the space.
