“The airFIELD is a dynamic Liquid Crystal sculpture synced to real-time flight data that reflects the heartbeat of the world’s busiest hub, the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Each flight that lands or takes off from this airport activates the visual behavior of the sculpture. Planes traveling a short distance will create small ripples in the sculpture while planes traveling a longer distance cause greater activity. The airFIELD was conceived of and designed by Jamie Barlow, Dan Goods, and Nik Hafermaas and produced by UEBERSEE, an artists production platform specializing in the convergence of digital media with spatial experiences.”
