Double Horizon
Double Horizon is an interactive lighting installation designed by artist J. Meejin Yoon. Located at the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry on the U.S.-Mexico border, the installation features a linear lighting element along the leading edge of the primary inspection canopy. Triggered by the vehicles traveling beneath it, this LED array serves as an illuminated broadcast of real-time traffic data, responding with individual bursts of blue light that fade across the canopy's length. Viewed from a distance, the canopy edge produces a second, animated horizon line that mimics the natural horizon beyond.

Squared was brought on to the project upon completion in order to create a visual documentation package. Using a Dynamic Perception Stage Zero rig, both time-lapse photography and motion controlled videography were utilized to overcome the challenge of capturing a project that is 520' long and only a few feet tall. These techniques communicate the direct relationship of the installation to the vehicles passing beneath it, while magnifying the interactive nature of the project itself.
