Rainbow’s End

A meditation on distances traveled and the larger human journey, Rainbow’s End is a 24-color 80,000 sq. ft. epoxy terrazzo floor in Terminal 3 plus Concourses E and F at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. It is inspired by the beauty of South Florida and the writing of John Steinbeck and Loren Eiseley. In one area a school of hammerhead sharks pass silently through a cloud of dark blue waters, provoking a sense of beauty and the unknown. Starfish and stars appear together in reference to John Steinbeck’s writing from the Sea of Cortez. The story of humanity is one of a great journey: in a sense, we are all world travelers and explorers. We locate ourselves in the stories that evoke our comings and goings, affirmed by a painted sunset across the vast horizon of space and time. Created by the Artist Team Scott Parsons and David Griggs.
