So Long Bro (2000)

This window is dedicated to Mark Kemper.

The scale of the design projects boldly for several hundred feet into the central hub. By lifting the composition above eye level, the horizon line is preserved, giving a sense of openness.

The architectural context is exceptionally beautiful. The winged shape of the wall suggests flight and there are "floating clouds' within the metal light fixtures of the ceiling. The mullions in the curtain wall accentuate the extreme horizontalness of the opening and create an excellent canvas, calling to mind a Japanese screen. The design harmonizes with these architectural features while being both visually pleasing and soothing to travelers.

Note: The artwork was removed in 2005 to make way for airport expansion and will be relocated.
