Installed in the new international terminal at Hobby Airport, RE:Site’s art piece TIME IN MOTION utilizes new technology and materials to both inform and calm visitors at the baggage claim. This sweeping light sculpture evokes a motion blur effect, changing color in a moving gradient. As viewers approach, the work reveals an interpretive timeline exhibit that tells the story of air travel in the Houston region.
This project combines digital fabrication, LED light programming, and new acrylic material products to create the artist’s desired atmospere and presence. A surface film on the front glass requires the viewer to travel down the length to read the information, with both past and future blurred, much like our experience of time.
