About Dioda
Utilizing the skylight above, Dioda utilizes folded, two dimensional triangular sections of plastic cardboard installed into the skylight at the airport terminal and acts as a filter for light to enter into the terminal, creating shadows and reflections upon the ground below. The piece responds to the natural light emitted through the skylight to create a constantly changing and dynamic work of art. As visitors enter and walk through the terminal, the skylight installation constantly changes due to the position of the viewer.

This exhibit is funded by the Bonnaroo Works Fund, the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, and Arts at the Airport.
