Comprised of 21,000 linear feet (6400 meters) of custom dyed, 100% cotton, USA made rope. In accordance with Class A standards, all ropes were sprayed with fire retardant prior to installation. As commissioned, the installation features a diptych of twin alcoves on either side of pedestrian walkways; 360 ropes fan outwards from the upper clerestory windows to form three “X” shapes referencing the phrase “X marks the spot”; or in this case, the arrival or departure point of the travelers. This work celebrates aviation’s increased accessibility to the general public and our ability to reach more destinations than ever before.
