"Transit" 

Scott Snibbe

Transit is a large-scale video installation in the Los Angeles International Airport’s Tom Bradley International Terminal that plays on fifty-eight back-to-back HD monitors curving above the arrivals waiting area. The fifteen-minute video features hundreds of pedestrians in silhouette who take part in a loose narrative grounded in their ceaseless movements left to right. Against this backdrop, travelers occasionally put down their bags and break into exuberant dance routines in styles that reflect L.A.’s diversity: from Hip-Hop to Salsa, Ballet, and Punk.

"Women Hold Up Half the Sky"

Scott Snibbe

Women Hold Up Half the Sky is a permanent installation in the lobby of the Mills College Life Sciences Building in Oakland, California. This video artwork celebrates the contributions of women in science from ancient to modern times. On two large projections, animations retell the history of women in science, commencing with Hypatia, the Egyptian mathematician, astronomer, and physicist born in the fourth century. The installation shows stylized views of the women at work in their laboratories, and montages of the womens’ discoveries.
