Dawn

Dawn

'Dawn' is a monumental sculpture currently under construction for the new King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The artwork references the positive elements of travel; the freedom of flight and the opportunities this offers. The sculpture also brings the latest lighting technology and unique form into the heart of a major new airport to enhance the traveller experience and signify its importance as a destination. LED technology is used to create light effects inspired by the movement of clouds. Patches of white light will drift through clusters of illuminated blue acrylic blades. The sculpture is subtle due to its transparency yet strong due to its illuminated visual effects. Every effort has been taken to relate the artwork to its architectural surroundings and to the context of the airport.
