HOLDING PATTERN #15 - I’ve been fascinated by airports for as long as I can remember — there’s something about the process of departure and the process of landing with the organization and operation. The logic and order embodied by seemingly random lines becomes clear forming a universal language of flying in any city that guides passengers to a safe place. From the above looking down, the complex geometric compositions belong to the growing field of design that starts with infrastructure and winds up with abstraction making for some beautiful patterns that are overlooked when travelling. Airports themselves are beautiful city like structures of incredible geometric compositions acting as beacons for the most sophisticated of modern air travel, while transitioning people through massive sanctuaries to their next point of departure. Air travel is incredibly fascinating and with this work, my intention was to capture a snap-shot of the modern airport - architecturally, while also exploring the complexity of flight and the interconnectedness of both.
Assembly Methodology & Materials:
•Conceptualized with 3D vector design in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop including superimposed photographic and hand generated elements.
