Vector HH

Location: Suspended above the Escalator leading from the Main Concourse to the Baggage Area, William P. Hobby Airport

Inspired by humanity's ancient desire to fly without the aid of external devices, the sculpture, Vector HH represents the contrail generated in the air by a human figure flying with open arms. The orange figure is visible from the central ticketing area and the observation deck; however, when taking the escalators leading to the baggage claim area, the piece becomes progressively abstract giving the impression of a vibrant three-dimensional zigzag overhead.
