San Diego International Airport recently unveiled its newest public artwork in Terminal 1.
The piece, "Signalscape" by local architect/designer Miki Iwasaki, measures approximately 64 feet in length and is mounted over the baggage claim area. It is equipped with motion sensors that light up as people walk by.
The project is part of Phase II of the Airport Art Master Plan, which sets out to integrate artwork into the design and infrastructure of San Diego International Airport.
We asked Iwasaki, a professor at Woodbury University, to tell us more about the installation:---
CityBeat: Why was including the motion sensor important to the piece?
Nothing specifically. I mean it doesn't spell anything out nor is it symbolic. But its abstraction can be be associated with communication and information, I suppose.
Are you working on anything else we should know about?
