Morning on Earth, v.2D

Morning on Earth, v.2D

Category: Temporary

From January to June 2020, the screen above the main escalator/stair to Baggage Claim will host a work of video art by Indianapolis-based artist Carla Knopp.

Morning on Earth presents an altered-state glimpse into a mysterious cosmic event. Celestial spheres seek order among the relics of a past civilization; our viewpoint calmly circles around to witness a glowing sunrise through an empty glass vitrine.

The piece was previously shown as a 360-degree video, viewed through virtual reality goggles or projected onto spherical viewing screens. This current version premieres at IND as a traditional screen-based video, where its dream-like reverie echoes the disorienting renewal of travel.
