The Wonders of the Heavens and Flying

2001, Susan Narduli. American Airlines Terminal, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

This large work depicts the solar system and giant images of nude men in motion. The images are etched into the granite and terrazzo floor, and have been installed as part of the renovation of the American Airlines Terminal. The work was deemed controversial and temporarily covered. The covers came off on July 19, 2001, and the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Commission ruled on August 2, 2001, that the work remain uncovered.
