#interconnected an installation of abstract form, color and simulated texture, debuted in July, 2018 as one of the largest public art digital visualizations in the world as part of Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) @cltairport
The artwork, created by groundbreaking artist @refikanadol Anadol, uses custom-designed software, more than 2,000 square feet of original, high-definition art content displayed on cutting-edge technology and 850 linear feet of programmable LED lights embedded in the concourse façade to transform the hidden troves of airport operations data into a dramatically choreographed panorama of moving lights. “Interconnected” features a data sculpture, two data paintings and exterior fins with programmable ribbons that change colors in response to the artwork. The sculpture, which stretches 1,152 square feet, is located by a moving walkway.
The combined artwork is organized into three distinct visual chapters: “Fluid Structures,” “Impossible Materials” and “Data Poems.”
Airport activity dictates the sculpture’s density and its movement. It’s more active during busier hours and calmer late at night, when fewer people are traveling.
“Along with the unique forms and motions of each chapter, variations in texture and color within each chapter add an additional layer of real-time response to the data,” Anadol said. “The artwork is constantly changing and evolving as it responds to the ever-changing flow of data, creating a living snapshot of the invisible patterns that surrounds us as we travel to, from and within Charlotte Douglas International Airport.”
