Photographed in NYC, Paris and Barcelona, the 40 screen installation is a two-and-a-half minute revolving global oasis with an ambient city soundscape that surrounds and immerses thousands and thousands of passengers passing through the terminal every day.
Directed by Mill+ Rama Allen, the time-lapse films create a feeling of calm as it moves with the viewer on their journey down the moving walkway.
The film is displayed on eight banks of five HD screens each, and the time-lapse technique incorporates lateral motion on a motion control rig. The direction of motion is always the same, which creates the illusion that the world is rotating around viewers outside the hall. To create this seamless rotation, over a million individual still frames were engineered to span an extraordinary 80,000-pixel HD canvas. The multi-media piece previews some enticing travel options made possible with the Citibank AAdvantage card.
