METRO Light Rail Station – NRG / Astrodome

I Remember – Monumental spaces, such as the ones at NRG Park, are not only grand in their capacity for people and events, but also function as vast and immeasurable repositories for our indelible memories. In a sense, NRG Park becomes a staging area for significant moments in peoples’ lives.

Using the rail station as a symbolic portal, the artwork opens the door to these memories for the visitors through the use closely cropped and blurred images of past events at the Astrodome. The glass canopy allows light to filter through transparent text which contain quotes and fan expressions.
