electroboutique: airport

the russian artist collective electroboutique created this open-air installation called airport for the archstoyanie festival held last summer. the work consists of a fully functioning airport flight tracking board installed deep in a forest. the group describes the piece as ‘a poetic reflection on the possible ways of the urban civilization development’. ‘airport is placed right in a forest, between trees and bushes. the huge display shows flight numbers, departures times, gates, airlines and destinations. all information is displayed in real time. a female voice announces changes in the timetable, last calls and other information that is usually announced at airports.’ the piece is intended to show a utopian transportation system where only the media network that enables feedback with passengers remains.

  • Very cool, causes a great feeling of “something out of place”.
