Shining Field is an environment of sound and light, evoking the science-fiction-like activity of an imaginary airport. Invisible yet pervasive, it carries our imagination to the crossroads of the Nazsca geoglyphs of the Incas and the runway of the UFO in “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”.
The hangar is shrouded in darkness.
On the floor, a carpet of LED’s, some reacting to aerial sounds, others blinking in their own signal patterns.
The visitor treks out along an elevated runway, crossing the exhibition space to arrive at a vista point with a panoramic view of the luminescent motifs…
…. the sonic ambiance torn from time to time by crashing spatialized landings or electronic liftoffs.
