Three Indeterminate Lines

line-open1

Let’s talk about Three Indeterminate Lines, a new public art sculpture here at the airport. The sculpture is located between Terminals 1 and 2 on a grassy traffic island. Have you seen it? Look for it next time you drive or walk by.

maryThe piece is actually one of 13 large-scale sculptures installed around San Diego as a collaborative monumental exhibition by renowned French artist Bernar Venet, in cooperation with the Port of San Diego.

In addition to the piece at the airport, other sculptures can be found at San Diego locations such as the intersection of Harbor Drive and Laurel Street (just before getting to the airport from downtown), the San Diego Museum of Art and the Omni Hotel. The exhibit will be in place through October 31, 2009.

Easy now: the piece being installed at San Diego Internaitonal Airport.

These numerous art figures make up a giant metropolitan sculpture garden, and I think it’s great that the airport can be a part of it! After all, the mission of the Airport Art Program includes enhancing customer service by engaging travelers in innovative, memorable and considerate experiences. I’d say this historic, high-caliber exhibition sure qualifies!

As always, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and art is open to interpretation … especially public art. This particular sculpture has generated a lot of buzz from airport employees.

  1. You can also see one of this pieces behind the Liberty Station Chapel. These pieces remind me of rusted coils and chocolate covered onion rings. Hee!hee! Sorry, I guess I am not that artistic.

  2. I think it looks like a tornado, or the rabbit hole from Alice in Wonderland. Still, it instills a sense of movement that is interesting.

    Also, it looks very different depending on what angle you look at it.

  3. It looks like curly fries!

  4. Installations of this nature sometimes do not integrate well visually within the enviroments we now see them placed.

    Maybe this sort of work would be better suited to a rotation, rather than what now appears as static anomaly.
