Seyed Alavai explains his Flying Carpet (below) this way: "This project consists of an aerial view of the Sacramento River that is woven into a carpet for the floor of a pedestrian bridge...A bridge is a connection between two destinations; it is not a destination in and of itself; it is neither here, nor there. In this way it is similar to an airplane, or a river connecting one place to another; here to there; a moment of flight frozen in mid air; a flowing river that takes us along with its current to another destination."
