Brooks, like his namesake David, believes we're just lonely, and it's killing us, as well as making us kill one another: America is suffering an epidemic of loneliness. According to a recent large-scale survey from the health care provider Cigna, most Americans suffer from strong feelings of loneliness and a lack of significance in their relationships.
Located on a major intersection in El Paso, The work links the ballgame, a playground and the street. It provides the security of a partition, while facilitating coincidental encounters with the game from the sidewalk.
It was fabricated from custom aluminum extrusions. Individual extrusions were CNC milled with a wood grain pattern and anodized a warm copper hue. The grain pattern allows light to pass through the fence while the ribs diffuse the light.
Designers and Principals in Charge: Neal Feay Co Installation Consultant: Like the city itself, it does not have a distinct beginning or end; inside or outside; back or front. It is both an object and an atmosphere.
Its appearance is not static as it is predicated on changing quality of light in the north light well at any hour of the day. Air Garden is a serene moment amidst the hectic action and movement within the airport.
LAX is a city among cities that envelops the globe, networked through a system of concourses, gates, terminals and connecting flights; it is an international metropolis of movement. Air Garden is a pause within this movement; a place for reflection and repose, an opportunity for the traveler to daydream.
Its components are made of gestural volumes of color hovering within an immense array of catenaries. Our hope is that Air Garden procures a mental clearing for the voyager that is a respite from the pressures of travel and produce a felicitous condition for daydreaming.
The work is like a cloud inside the light well, which can be clearly described using a term from chemistry: A suspension is a heterogeneous fluid or gas with solid particles more or less evenly dispersed within in it.
It is not opaque but more like a ubiquitous fog permeating the space. While the environment is interspersed with the metallic bead chain catenaries, it is also constructed from the negative space between the catenaries; sight extends into and throughout the building.
When developing the color composition of Air Garden we looked at the organization inherent in the architecture. We intend to shape color in three dimensions to echo the architectural order of the Bradley West Terminal by mimicking the shadows cast onto the array of catenaries by the structure members of the light well itself.
We chose two dates at which to cast the shadows, the summer solstice and the vernal equinox. To better understand the effectiveness of the hovering colored forms within the Air Garden we applied our findings from precursory research on theories of perception.
Testing in Gestalt psychology has proven that our mind puts together what is not explicitly present and imposes meaning and structure on visual input.
These theories support our assumption that the traveler will mentally connect the architectural order of the building across the void of the light well by way of color painted onto the cloud of bead chain.
For this reason, we are able to achieve a visual connection without having to precisely replicate the geometry of the building but rather to imply its presence.Susan Fournier is Associate Professor and Dean's Research Fellow at Boston University, USA.
Her research explores the creation and capture of value through branding and brand relationships and she has received five awards for her published work.5/5(2). The scarcity of systematic scholarly research on the customer experience construct and customer experience management calls for a theory-based conceptual framework that can serve as a stimulus and foundation for such research.
Susan is credited with founding the brand relationships sub-field in marketing and claims six best paper awards to her credit, including the Long-Term Contribution Award in Consumer Research and Emerald’s Citations of Excellence Award for the top 50 articles in Management.
