Overview

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.

Goals

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
