Jay Shinn permanent public installation at the Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston, Texas

This Spring, Jay Shinn will unveil a permanent public installation at the Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston, Texas in Terminal D.

The two large-scale works entitled “Celestial Candyland” and “Candyland Landing” are of constant change and are fixed geometrical images upon which another related geometrical image is projected. The projection follows a slow-tempo choreographed color changing sequence in order to engage the transient viewers. A moiré of changing colors dissolve, allowing a certain amount of increased illusion and layering. The changing light hues of layered images relate to the stratospheric movement of layers passing horizontally across the sky.

“Celestial Candyland” measures 150’ x 15’ and “Candyland Landing” is 45’ x 15’.

The layering of a permanent stationary image with the changing rich colors will provide a passing of time and a question of the mind’s eye, of mystery to the viewer.
