The Long March is a 27-tile Planar Mosaic array at the recently renovated Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport. The Planar Mosaic video wall incorporates depictions of movement, migration and marching from different eras in Alabama history, for instance, the Civil War, the Trail of Tears, the Children's March, the Selma Marches, football marching bands, the railroad, and migrations to the "Magic City." The long row of Planar Mosaic video tiles track to the center of the wall and meld into a kaleidoscope. The kaleidoscope is tiled in the shape of a Camellia - the Alabama state flower. The Camellia, in this instance, is a repository of past and present motion that represents the flowering that grows out of movement. The kaleidoscopic mixes and melds the long march footage creating new emergent patterns, forms and colors. Travelers who encounter the piece will be able to envision themselves as part of this mosaic that is symbolized through Alabama's relationship to 'the march' as a form of historical progression. This installation was made in collaboration with the CAUSE COLLECTIVE.
