The Intertwining is inspired by the fabrication and sculptural forms of bourbon stills, an example of the craftsmanship that has long defined Louisville as a dynamic center of industry and celebration.  Suspended within the airport’s rotunda, the gold-coated steel structure hovers lightly, designed to create an optical experience for passersby, regardless of their distance, vantage point, or pace.  As one moves toward and around the work, various Moiré effects and spaces emerge into view, recalling the flow of clouds or birds in flight.
