The latest addition to On Screen, the video-based component of the Indianapolis Airport Authority’s (IAA) temporary art program, has arrived at the Indianapolis International Airport (IND). Time Lapsed compiles as-it-happened footage of activity at IND over a three-month period in early spring of 2013 into a multi-dimensional portrait of how and where people move through time and space. Time Lapsed will appear on the IND video wall through June 2014.
The work is by lens-based artist Flounder Lee, who is interested in the intersections
between public and private, art and life, and history and the present. He uses his lens and
GPS technology to “map” both the land and human experiences, and often investigates
themes of borders, environmentalism, and the post-colonial world. He has traveled
extensively in creating and exhibiting works and found the airport and its fellow travelers
an interesting subject.
Lee grew up on a farm in Alabama, and flight has always fascinated him. He received a full
scholarship to study aerospace engineering at the University of Alabama, but art had a
slightly stronger pull, so after his first year he switched to photography and moved to
Florida. He received his B.F.A. in photography from the University of Florida in 2003 and
his M.F.A. in studio art from California State Long Beach in 2007. He taught photography
at the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis from 2007 to 2013, and currently
he lives just outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he is a senior lecturer of
communication, media, and broadcasting at Limkokwing University.
NORTH TERMINAL GARDEN SCULPTURE ARTWORK
The IAA has invited artists to submit proposals to temporarily install a work of art at IND’s
North Terminal Garden, which is located outside of the lower level of the terminal and
visible to the public from the upper and lower roadways and from the terminal. A panel of
IAA personnel and outside public art experts will consider proposals; a selected sculpture
would be on display for two years.
