Travel in Light

This video installation is composed of three black towers with three video monitors showing:
a mountain, a desert, and a rolling hill with a setting sun. The images are created with paper
and slowly moving light. This installation was specifically made for the Schiphol Airport,
Amsterdam. The way the three monitors are installed in such a way that recalls the airport
monitors for viewing flight information. The artist says that, “in these works I hope to
stimulate the memory, the imagination of the viewer,” adding “our imagination and sense of
anticipation is intensified when we are about to make a trip. In my installation I would hope
that the video works and their presence would be a source of quietness and pleasure as the
passengers wait for t
eir flight.” (Nan Hoover’s archive).
