the city of atlanta has commissioned artist christopher moulder to create an installation for the new hartsfield-jackson
airport international arrivals hall. influenced by the otherworldly formation of mammatocumulous clouds, 'mammatus'
is grounded in the physics of catenary curves. using over 8 miles of nickel-plated bead chains, the large sculpture is lit
with 30 color-kinetic RGB LED light luminaries that are programed to change color according to the date and time of day.
