airFIELD is suspended in the international terminal of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and measures 90-feet long by 30-feet wide.

The incredible sculpture is synced to the real-time flight data of the airport and utilizes the digital art platform UEBERSEE in order to transform thousands of liquid crystal discs.

Through a custom-engineered computer program, the flight data sets the sculpture in motion by flipping the discs and creating a visually stimulating experience.
