Artist:  Jim Green

Title:  "Musical Warning Beacons"

Medium:  Digital - Sound

Year Installed:  2003

Venue:  Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport  Terminals 1, 2, 3 & 4

 

Description

The "Musical Warning Beacons" installed at six baggage-claim carousels in Terminal 1, function as alert signals announcing the arrival of baggage. Each beacon has its own distinct sound; boat horns with sounds of the ocean and beckoning steel drums.  This lively, friendly and functional sound-art is substituted for the generic buzz alarm customary at other airports.

 

Artist Statement

"I intend for the "Musical Warning Beacons" to increase regional identity and help create a welcoming baggage-claim at Fort Lauderdale Airport. I intend for this work to celebrate arrival."
