Denver Airport art exhibit explores microbiology

DEN ACUMULO 1

A large-format temporary art exhibit at Denver International Airport (DEN) – titled “Acúmulo” (Portuguese for ‘growth by continued additions’) – presents a “loosely interpreted” microbiological habitat made of recycled materials from the airport and objects made or collected by artist Rosane Volchan O’Conor.

Neon light, ceramic, wood, metal and found objects such as luffa sponges, porcelain-dipped Spanish moss, and all manner of industrial-looking materials from the airport’s recycling bins are intended to make the viewer think of paramecium, spores and neurons.

See what you think… the installation is in the DEN Gallery through the end of July on the west side of the Jeppesen Terminal, near the north security area.
