Dirty Art

Views from inside SEA (Sea-Tac) Airport in Seattle Wa.

  

Landing,

by Ralph Helmick and Stuart Schechter

 

In October 2000, the artist team of Ralph Helmick and Stuart Schechter was selected to create a significant artwork for the space.

 

The pieces are comprised of thousands of precisely suspended cast metal elements and employ a sort of three-dimensional Pointillism wherein numerous small component sculptures coalesce into large composite forms.

 

When viewed from a distance is resembles a bird landing.
