HARMONIC CONVERGENCE

Art and airports make for a good mix. I can imagine myself sitting on the floor and hanging out at this pedestrian bridge at Miami International Airport, just watching the light change throughout the day.

Installed in 2011, Harmonic Convergence is part of artist Christopher Janney's “Urban Musical Instrument” series. He also composed a sound-score that draws on the sounds of South Florida.  "The sound-score elicits tropical birds, distant thunder storms, sounds of the Everglades and other natural environments indigenous to the area, creating a “sonic portrait” of South Florida."
I feel like I need to book a flight to somewhere with a long layover in Miami!

I feel the same way about the mosaic tunnel at LAX by Charles D. Kratka from 1961. I try to avoid LAX a much as possible, but I wouldn't mind so much if I could walk the tunnel at Terminal 6.
