GTAA - Toronto Airport - Ceiling Sculpture (Wind Current Arrows)

Location: Toronto, Ontario

Designer/Architect: Artists: Susan Schelle and Mark Gomes

Duration: Jun 2002 - Aug 2002

Scope: Soheil Mosun Limited was contracted to fabricate and install this large aluminum sculpture depicting wind currents on the ceiling at the international arrivals gate of Lester B. Pearson International Airport in Toronto.

Highlights: Sculpture is 1/2 inch thick aluminum, water jet cut with a non-directional orbital finish. Suspended with a custom cable and clipping system. It is light weight with flat aluminum curved arrows clipped directly to the ceiling, and concentric swirls made of the same materials hanging from a custom cable system beneath. When viewed from below, it is reminiscent of a weather map depiction of wind currents.
