Turbulent Line

Brisbane Airport, Australia

This 5000 square-meter facade of a new parking structure at the airport is covered with 250,000 hinged aluminum panels that sway in the breeze. The panels are perforated and anodized to render a photograph of a mast of a sailing ship reflected in water. The photograph of this man-made line distorted by the turbulent surface of water was taken in the nearby Brisbane River. As wind animates the facade, the huge photographic rendering is further distorted by nature. The installation, which was a collaboration with UAP, is one of the largest works of art in Australia. Completed in 2012.
