Norman Y. Mineta International Airport: AV Installation

Contract Value: $225,000
Interactive Public Art

ICS engineered and installed interactive public arts projects in the new Terminal B at the San Jose Airport. You can see their work in the Arrivals Hall, where they installed the Reactive AV Wall exhibit, also called “Shifting Time-San Jose.”

“Shifting Time-San Jose” is designed by pairing 20 pieces of historical video with clips of contemporary content of San Jose. If you move in front of the artwork in any one of the clips, the past comes more into view. To install the AV wall, ICS formed a blended image on a large wall and used two projectors mounted in the ceiling to make a single image. An infrared camera picks up video visitors that walk by the screen or stand in front of it, changing the video content. ICS was responsible for the AV projector configuration; the video processing required to blend a single image into two; the edge blending; hardware installation and installation of the racks in the ceiling to house the hardware.
