Airport Ergonomics

Damien Hirst - The Eucharist (2005)

The One AM Radio - Echoing Airports (mp3): Hrishikesh Hirway's lonely lyrics wander through terminals packed full of emptiness and bounce off plastic walls painted with life-sized postcards of oceans. He beats his filler magazine’s lack-of-substance against the stainless arm of the chair bank, giving fellow passengers answers to superficial questions they pondered but were too polite to ask. Hours are ignored as they happen. Excessive sitting balances the jolt of being suddenly flung across space. Today is the ergonomic luggage for carrying a swimsuit to its beach. And the moments are rushing past overhead.
