Sculpture For Airports

Sculpture for Airports proposes a democratisation of the security at airports by rerouting the naked images of travellers produced by the Rapiscan Secure 1000 scanner, to the portrait mounted flat screen TVs used for plane timetables. This will result in an interactive artwork that both references classical art history and the early experiments in photography carried out by Edward Muybridge, whilst allowing travellers the opportunity to take responsibility for their own security by keeping a lookout for concealed suspect devices.
