As the Crow Flies

Lynn Criswell's "As the Crow Flies" (terrazzo, waterjet cut aluminum plate, vacuum cast polyurethane; 2012) is located in the transfer level of Sacramento International Airport's ticket hall.

The yellow-green terrazzo rectangle (18’ x 30’) has 21 emerald green birdcages suspended directly overhead. Twenty-one silhouettes of various indigenous northern Californian birds were water jet cut in 3/8” brushed aluminum rectangles, inset into the floor, and filled with black terrazzo. Additionally, a metaphorical dialogue between a woman holding a birdcage and a magpie is embedded into the floor.
