San Jose Airport Space Observer

Reminiscent of a space craft, this glossy white 26’ tall sculpture, perched on a tripod of 8’ tall legs, explores the interactivity between humans and modern technology. Engage with this elaborate, yet delicate object and it will quietly rotate with the aid of two propeller-tipped arms. Its “eye” reveals images picked up from embedded cameras .
