This incredible site specific installation is on Level 2 (past security) at Miami Airport where I came across it again this week when visiting the city. 

The walkway is half a mile long, created by the artists over the course of many months being inspired by the Florida coastal waters, its saltwater plants and vertebrate creatures. 

As you walk down the long walkway you come across 2000 cast brinze elements embedded in the floor. 

Utterly beautiful and peaceful, a true expample of art and science in a most unexpected place.


One of the 2000 elements.
