For this specific commission for VAA, it was my goal to engage clubhouse visitors in the beautiful settings of Los Angeles through shifting lightscapes, subtle movement, and vivid color.  Pulling from my personal experience as an LA resident, I focused on isolated moments that encapsulate the experience of the city, the landscape, and the environment in the area.  The artwork runs on a 30-minute loop, exploring surf, city, and nature moving from daytime to nighttime.  The clubhouse architecture and design is a collaboration between Slade Architecture and Virgin Atlantic’s In-House design team — The media wall installation rests at the heart of clubhouse's dining area. An additional 30-minute artwork was commissioned in 2017.
