Dappled Light at Los Angeles International Airport

Here’s a short video of a lovely art installation in the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport.

The piece is called Dappled Light and is a collaborative project by Los Angeles-based artist Ken Marsh and architect Roger Bennett.

Here’s their description of the art work:

“Dappled Light” replicates the naturally occurring phenomenon seen on sunny days under trees in the form of “sun discs” shimmering on the ground and nearby walls. The discs are created by the principle of camera obscura – sunlight that passes through a “pin-hole” in a thin material reflects the sun’s image on the surfaces it strikes.”

You can see Dappled Light in person until February 17th, 2011.
