A series of prints combining the diagrams of the top 100 airports in the United States in sets of threes. All identifying features have been left out, leaving only the terminals and runways. Airports in themselves are not destinations, but more of a juncture of geographical space. More specifically, they are non-spaces connecting to other non-spaces, or as Rem Koolhaus refered them, Junkspaces. Airports today are high-tech waiting-rooms that require a pass and security screening to enter. Once inside, they are a series of corridors, a sellers marketplace, to occupy one until boarding a metal tube to transpont one to the next non-space. Rinse and repeat. These prints attempt to compress these spaces, making distance and place irrelevant.
