Must See: Ebb and Flow IV

By Jake,

Work

We’re a house full of creatives and love when our people make cool stuff. Megan’s it again and this time it’s inside terminal 2 at STL’s Lambert International Airport: 

Install in progress, not looking too shabby at 4am after 6+ hours…

 

St. Louis artist Megan Singleton created “Ebb and Flow IV” at Carousel 2. Her work interprets USDA geospatial data of the Lower Missouri River watershed, which encompasses the area near the Airport. Singleton used pulp paper to mimic the lines of the watershed, which creates a dynamic relief along the wall. The opposite wall displays a series of botanical drawings of native Missouri aquatic plants. The drawings were laser cut from handmade paper, made from the very plants that the cut out drawings depict.

There’s a write-up on flystl.com with more info on the other artwork you’ll find there as well.

The next time you’re coming or going to the area via Southwest swing by baggage claim and take a look. Heck, even if you’re not in Terminal 2, plan ahead and take the bus over. The work was installed this past November and will be up for 18 months.
