Dream of Flight

Three ceiling wells, Concourse B

Cascading from within three light-filled ceiling wells are hundreds of over-sized leaves in shimmering blue, gold and green. In Dream of Flight, each leaf is halted in its journey so that viewers can leisurely contemplate the shapes, patterns and play of light that unfold when time stands still. Travelers going toward or coming from their own mid-air suspension may be reminded that flight is wonderous both as a force of nature and a mechanical invention.
