Vector Field is a site-specific media artwork for Dallas Lovefield Airport. Created through autonomous patterns of light formed by the rhythm of passengers on the moving walkway. The gamut of light used from the RGBW LED’s is inspired by the epic and colourful skies of Lovefield, Texas.
Comprised of 100 individually addressable LED rings and suspended in a voxel arrangement, the eddies, currents and vortexes of light are generated by adjacent passenger movement.
The bespoke rings cascading along the line of the circulation route are triggered by people walking and creating disturbances in the air, each interacting with past patterns and creating echoes of their movement.
