These days, airports are the pits. Extreme delays, bare feet, pat downs and packed flights are the last thing we want to encounter after waking up in the dark to get there. Next month, travelers at Miami International Airport are in for a special treat when an interactive installation will delight their eyes and ears as they walk from the rental car terminal to the airport proper. “Harmonic Convergence,” by Christopher Janney, covers the airport’s 180 foot-long moving walkway 132 sheets of colored glass organized in “zones of color.” There are also strategically placed, movement-activated speakers that play sounds native to Florida, such as music, crickets and birds. All that seems like it should make for a better in-flight mood, no?
