Commissioned for the Kansas City International Airport by the Kansas City Municipal Arts Commission One Percent for the Arts Program. Completed 2004.
This commission is a three phase installation, located in three separate stair towers adjacent to the parking areas at Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City, MO. Each location houses a pair of rotating fluorescent “signals”.
DEUCE was included in the Americans for the Arts/Public Art Network annual “Year in Review.”
DEUCE is visible from the outside as well as inside the towers. The crystalline, glass and steel structure of the tower duplicates the signals through reflection, letting the towers act as an amplifier of its own contents. It is this integration that allows the towers themselves to act as signaling locations – hubs of transference and pace change – moving the resolution of the work from object to site.
