“I was interested in exploring the almost magical sense of tranquility that you experience when cruising above the clouds - flying is perhaps one of the few oasis of calm in our in- creasingly interconnected digital so- ciety. Crystal Atmosphere was designed to impart a sense of calm to the viewer as well as to intrigue and fascinate, making the visitor reflect and take a step back from their every- day lives. I hope that this will be a memorable and unexpected experi- ence for the guests,” said Fjellman. Diana Oreck, Executive Vice Pres- ident of Owner Experience at NetJets says Art Basel in Miami Beach is an annual highlight for NetJets Owners 36 PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE from around the globe—many of whom are avid art collectors and en- thusiasts. e company’s long-run- ning involvement is testament to the show’s continued position as the world’s leading platform for Modern and contemporary art. Previous artists commissioned by NetJets have created extraordinary ex- periences. Last year, British artist Re- becca Louise Law created an installation entitled ‘Growth,’ that was a one-of-a-kind piece that explored the relationship between man and nature and was created from preserved flow- ers sculpted and entwined with copper wire. e finished piece had the ap- pearance of a beautiful sky full of flow- ers and was composed of 11,000 dried flowers, that took more than 100 hours to install. Also, in 2015 NetJets commissioned Snarkitecture to reimagine the exterior of a NetJets Global 5000. e wrapped aircraft, designed to look like an ombre sky, was unveiled at Miami International Airport to celebrate the start of Art Basel Miami Beach. And this year, NetJets is expanding its partnership with its artist by opening a second and different installation at the Four Seasons hotel at e Surf Club in Surfside, Florida. At this invitation-only event on Wednesday, December 6, Fjellman will be in attendance to discuss her work with guests.
