Glowing Neon at O’Hare Airport, Chicago

(Last Updated On: December 28, 2019)

It isn’t often that I look forward to the hike between airport concourses. However, at O’Hare, the trip between Concourse B and C is enlivened by cheerful neon lighting that zips and zings above as you glide down the moving walkway.

The Sky’s the Limit is by Michael Hayden and Kristina Lucas. With 466 neon tubes it would be over a mile long if stretched out into a single line, it is claimed to be the largest neon sculpture in the world. The changing light is managed by three computers and, apparently, is supposed to include a musical accompaniment.

It was silent today, providing an unusually tranquil interlude between flights.
