The kinetic sculpture proposed for the terminal hall of Treviso airport is unfolding its own beauty recalling a flying carpet and its associated dreams of far far away mystical places on our planet.
The slow wave-like movement generated by 24 individually moving aluminum tentacles combined with changing color led illumination is activating the terminal hall like a moving cloud, setting a contrast of lightness against the dark timber ceiling. Movement and light is merging into a mechanic poem telling the tales of long forgotten dreams and places in a hyper-mobile world.
