A linear sequence of identical ellipses made of anodized aluminium and arranged below the canopy of the CONRAC entry, a terminal sized transportation hub for Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
The ellipses feature integrated white LED programmed to run lighting sequences along the length of the artwork and to subtly vary in color temperature. Each ellipse consists of two elements glued back to back, the different anodized colors on each side
creating gradients of twilight colors. The lighting and daylight create a dynamic interaction between these color relationships, differentiating and activating the views along the entry while embodying a sense of twilight over Lake Michigan.
