Idling on the Tarmac

The airport as office. It’s a nice change of scenery from the office I generally inhabit (my living room), or the stairwell office, the coffeeshop office, the empty classroom office, etc. Wherever there’s an internet connection and I have my laptop… it’s work.

My love of airport scenery is possibly second only to that of container ship terminals. Deepwater ports, they get me every time. (Click to see related portfolio work) The industrial machines that run the world and their parking spaces, their petty inconveniences, their strict adherence to orders passed down from highly regulated towers.

Shortly I’ll be boarding my next office with a view of a world in darkness. Perhaps a suitable environment to polish off my scathing essay on the downfall of Enron. Two words – Money and… systematic elimination of traditional checks and balances.

Cylinders in the Sky.
