June 2014, New York - The installation of the completed ensemble of three monumental sculptures - Voice of Tomorrow, History of Time and Outside Time - marks an important moment in the major redevelopment of Terminal 4 as it continues its expansion to accommodate estimated 16 million passengers per year.
Voice of Tomorrow radiates its warmth beyond the physical boundaries of its construction.
With its brilliant color, Voice of Tomorrow is situated at the high traffic intersection at the end of the central retail hall and the start of the boarding gates walkway. Instantly popular with passengers, the 14-foot sculpture resembles a pulsating heart, the emotional embrace to all who are about to board. Placed at eye level, with no base, Voice of Tomorrow operates at the viewer’s level and becomes one with the viewer, according to Lukanov. Comprised of 150 feet of bent steel tubing and 150 elements, Voice of Tomorrow radiates its warmth beyond the physical boundaries of its construction. Like Outside Time, it is 90-percent airborne. “Voice of Tomorrow is a singular, starting source of energy, a veritable origin of warmth, and thus light,” added Lukanov.
