Welcome to the City of San José's new digital front door!

Facility Directory Table List

The Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) is one of the region’s most significant connections to a global community that views Silicon Valley, and specifically San Jose, as a leader in technology innovation. Through the tools and technologies developed in this region, public art will provide a portal to this community.

Travel through San Jose’s new airport and discover public artworks that create an immediate sense of Silicon Valley. These installations are part of a program of Art + Technology, showcasing the diversity, creativity and dynamism of this region.

Some of the artworks at the airport will be permanently on display. Others will be shown for several years and replaced with new works that align with the Art + Technology theme.

The SJC Public Art Master Plan

The SJC Public Art Program started in the early years of the millennium as part of the airport capital improvement program with the development of the Airport Public Art Master Plan that outlines a framework for a program of Art + Technology.

Activation Plan

In 2006, the team of Gorbet + Banerjee (Matt and Susan LK Gorbet + Banny Banerjee) developed an Activation Plan for the airport public art program that defines a series of platforms for artwork throughout the airport. Platforms are defined by location, data and power provisions, equipment space, and physical attachments. Artists are given the unique opportunity to work with these platforms in designing their artworks.

Supporting research report and schematic strategy documents for the Art + Technology Program’s Art Activation are available under Plans & Documents.

Art Activation Infrastructure

Artists: Banny Banerjee · Matt Gorbet · Susan LK Gorbet

The Art + Technology Program is built on a foundation of flexible ‘platforms’ for artists to use in creating technology and data-driven art. The multi-disciplinary team of Gorbet+Banerjee designed art program infrastructure, determining appropriate locations, data, power and structure for artists to employ now and in the future. The infrastructure accommodates projection based, digital and data-driven artworks, and can be changed over time in keeping with the inevitable technological changes of the future.
