Located in Compass Books in terminal 3 of the San Francisco International Airport, Aeriform Aviary is a 20+ foot hanging mobile sculpture that features highly detailed geometric wire-frame "planes" inspired by the forms of birds native to California, including the hummingbird, owl, raven, falcon, quail and pelican. Each "plane" is designed to recall early flying-machine prototypes.
