FC Dallas Soccer Complex Larry Kirkland Sculpture “Frisco Flyer”
Located in the north plaza of the FC Dallas soccer team’s home, the 30 foot high Frisco Flyer is a steel and aluminum sculpture which forms the winged foot of the swift mythological god Hermes/Mercury. This 15 ft wide static sculpture with animated lighting is a tribute to those swift soccer players who help bring their teams to victory.
FMS designed the rhythmic transitional illumination and choreography scheme to provide a related sense of motion to the Frisco Flyer and with the subtle use of warm and cool colors, constantly re-reveal the sculpture.
The Saturn like ring surrounding the sculpture provides a discreet mounting location for digital light engines to create a highly efficient and directed source of illumination, which is capable of rendering millions of colors. These fixtures are programmed using a computer based digital protocol to replay a series of carefully designed lighting events on a nightly schedule.
