Janet Echelman: Every Beating Second. San Francisco International airport

Janet Echelman’s newest commissioned sculpture, Every Beating Second, transforms the airspace of SFO’s new Terminal 2 Recomposure Zone. Her sculpture installation cuts three round skylights into the ceiling, from which descend delicate layers of translucent colored netting to create three voluptuous volumetric forms. A series of shaded outlines below are embedded into the terrazzo floor, reflecting the precise shadows that would occur on the summer solstice if the sun could penetrate through the roof.
