The San Diego International Airport (SAN) Arts Program is pleased to welcome the Fall 2020 Performing Arts Residency Program artist, Margaret Noble and her featured work [Sky][Muse].
Born in Texas and raised in California, Noble’s experimental artworks have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her interdisciplinary work resides at the intersection of sound, sculpture, and performance and is influenced by the dynamic, dance music cultures of southern California.
Through her Performing Arts Residency, Noble will present a series of audio-visual works designed to ignite, delight, and reframe the airport experience. Inspired by Brian Eno’s seminal work Music for Airports and the historical art traditions of visual music and graphical notation, [Sky][Muse] is a collection of animated “scrolls” accessible through personal devices such as phones, tablets, and laptops. For passengers preparing to move through portals, time zones, and geographies these short, digital works will enhance their travel by elevating their sensory experiences of color, light, and sound.
From August to December 2020, these thematic digital programs will be available to airport audiences for personal engagement and public conversation. Themes of transformation, destination, and process are presented through the juxtaposition of being exactly somewhere and yet nowhere. Not limited to the experience of air travel, these works are available for anyone in waiting or on a journey.
“The Arts Program is a way for us to infuse light, levity, comfort, and life-enriching experiences for passengers and our community,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “We welcome artist Margaret Noble and her work [Sky][Muse]. She’s managed to find a way to engage people in a safe way during COVID-19 while providing an interactive outlet for anyone that is on a journey. We look forward to experiencing more of her works through the duration of her residency.”
The San Diego International Airport Arts Program includes performing arts, public art, and temporary exhibitions components which are aimed at engaging travelers and creating an ambiance unique to the culture of San Diego. The Performing Arts Residency Program, which launched in 2016, cultivates the local performing arts community by inviting artist groups/collectives to develop and perform new work over the course of five months that simultaneously enriches the airport experience for customers.
