A Passage of Illumination

As travelers enter Portaurora, it responds to their movement with a wash of colors in the space above them, creating an interactive experience reminiscent of the northern lights. The traveler's presence is essential to the experience, and changes the artwork dynamically with every passage.

Commissioned by the Port of Portland, the installation is located in Concourse D of the Portland International Airport, which is regularly recognized as the best airport in the United States. Sticky is very honored to have Portaurora included in the permanent art collection at PDX.
