Artist Name: Refik Anadol
Year Installed: 2018
Location: Concourse A Connector and Gates A21 and A22

Artist's Statement:
Three massive LED screens into an ever-changing digital artwork modeled on real-time airport operations data ranging from flight times and shuttle bus circulation to departures and arrivals.

“What you see is a multimillion particles, each particle representing every single operation that the airport has been doing the last 90 days. (What is translated into millions of pixels is airport operations, like flight arrivals and departures, baggage movements and airport parking.) And that’s the most, for me and for the many people hopefully, will be the inspiration – the freshness of seeing this invisible world of data transforming itself every single day into something else.”

Journey 1 and Journey 2

Raed-2

Raed-1

Artist Name: Ráed Al-Rawi
Year Installed: 2019
Location: Concourse B, Gates B3 and B4

Artist’s Statement:
Traveling is a journey we take in our bodies and our minds. The images of flying people, animals and articles are intended to give a sense of dream-like freedom as we travel on our journeys. It’s my hope these flying scenes going in the direction of the gates will bring conversations, thoughts and humorous relief to travelers. I believe the images provide to the viewer a surreal quality and imagination to the landscape of North Carolina from the mountains in “Journey 1” mural to the beaches in “Journey 2” mural.

We are All on the Same Plane and Queens of Catawba

nIco-1
nIco-2

Artist Name: Nico Amortegui
Year Installed: 2019
Location: Concourse B, Gates B7 and B10

Artist’s Statement:
As the Queen City grows, we look to cherish those that came way before us while embracing residents rooted here for generations just as much as the city’s many transplants. Whether passing through or coming home, these women serve to remind us of the rich history of the Charlotte area and also to note the cultural heart beat that thrives here.
