Sky is a collaborative installation by Franka Diehnelt and Claudia Reisenberger that explores perceptions of space. Each mirrored sphere's exterior reflects and distorts its surroundings, as subtle shifts in light and color create an optical effect in the interior of each sphere. This creates the illusion that each space seems to be simultaneously expanding and flattening, causing the viewer to lose sense of the spheres' proportions.

Best Viewing: Post security; accessible to ticketed passengers for Boarding Area E only.
