Description: Jonathan Michael Davis created a series of suspended sculptures reflexive and responsive to its surrounding aesthetic located on Concourse E. The process involves multiple texturing and coloring techniques, utilizing blown and flameworked glass. This installation's shapes evoke themes of aquatic life and molecular structures, while bringing life to the aerial space. Concepts begin as translations of heat and movement while the modular glass components allow for creative spontaneity and versatility. This exhibit is a cerebral experience while creating moments of pause in a place of continuous motion is inspired by the artists’ adventure of nature. Dimensions for the West (Gate E36) measure at approximately 8' - 10' x 3' at its widest point for each piece with a weight of up to 80 lbs. each. Dimensions for the East (Gate E43) measure at approximately 3' diameter with a weight of 5 lbs each.
