Terminal Transit
Project info

"If you were asked to take a Martian to visit a single place that captures all the themes running through the modern world-from our faith in technology to our destruction of nature, from our interconnectedness to our romanticising of travel- then you would almost certainly have to head to an airport. Airports, in all their turmoil, interest and beauty, are the imaginative centres of our civilisation."
