 'Solar Prominences'
  Media: wire-brushed aluminum
  Year: 1988
  Conservation Status: In Good Repair
  Notes: The site-specific artwork was designed to be viewed under the high-pressured sodium lights of the original 1979 Hartsfield Airport, where its textured aluminum surfaces would "reflect the … orange and white lights, making them look on fire. The explosions and activity of the solar prominences are suggested by the flashing, changing lights visible in the sculpture.
