Passing Through

Location: pedestrian connectors in Terminal A at George Bush Intercontinental Airport

Passing Through is inspired by two elements of the pedestrian connector: the transitional mood of its environment, as travelers pass through en route to various destinations, and the full light of its architectural design.

Artist, Leamon Green has etched this great expanse of glass walls with illustrations of travelers passing through the different cultures of the world.

In addition to the large panels of etched glass, the artist also created a series of wall-mounted, fiber-optic light boxes utilizing colorful printed acrylic interlayers laminated between sheets of glass.
