German artist Florian Claar puts focus on demonstration of the rhythm of the light and objects. He is skillful in using large-scale sculptures to display the fluidity and dynamic performance. His creative form often shows the airflow tension and dynamic image through large-scale sculptures: minimalism, future and industrialization; at the same time collocating with metal materials and colors that shows a sense of science and technology, the overall artwork exudes a strong contemporary style. Claar has a high profile in Japan and Asia. His works are featured in many important attractions, including Tokyo Midtown, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art-Kanazawa, Bunri University of Hospitality, Novotel Taipei Taoyuan International Airport Hotel, Daan District Administration Center and so on.
HSR and TIAA MRT are both built for speed and saving time. This public art is installed at the open courtyard walkway between HSR and TIAA MRT systems. Acting as a medium between the sky and the ground, this artwork is inspired by airflow aerodynamics as well as aviation technology. The form of "Movement no.9 –Airgate" originates from the rhythmic form when objects are put in motion, the contour and curvature of compression and expansion and the forming angle. The artist attempted to integrate fluid cohesion, compressibility and three-dimensional movement into the artwork. With a kind of non-figurative but apparent image of speed as spatial positioning, he used the great sculpture as the intermediary between the sky and the ground, symbolizing time, contemporary and speed. The broad geometric shapes depict the act of flying; the internal design demonstrates the characteristic of constant motion and brings out a sense of smooth stability with the airflow. The flow of air and force is also demonstrated through the metal materials that the artist is an expert in. When encountering the public art, it allows the audience to personally feel the wind speed and air during flying.
