Phoenix Lights, Phoenix Rising, Sky Harbor International Airport, Southwest Terminal, Phoenix, AZ. 2022

Phoenix Light, Phoenix Rising is a massive art installation created by Los Angeles artist Susan Logoreci. It is located in the new Southwest Airlines Terminal, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.

The immersive, art project consists of a 10,000 square foot terrazzo floor and twenty-eight 2’ x 3’ airplane window shaped, terrazzo wall pieces. It is a captivating, progressive experience, taking the viewer from the city at night through sun drenched, local landscapes.

Inspired by the notion of a glass-bottomed airplane, the floor depicts aerial views of the Phoenix landscape. When the viewer enters the connector bridge, they will look down and see night-lights illuminating the gridded streets of neighborhoods. The images gradually change to a lighter, dawn lit view of scattered houses and streets. As the viewer continues, the colors get lighter, the houses and roads disappear into familiar, agricultural fields before ending in the golden mountains that surround Phoenix.
