I have got a very strange love/hate relationship with airports. Well, how many times have I started a blog post with that sentence? Plenty probably. Frankly, I enjoy being in airports because of all the people. Have you ever stopped to think about how many people are traveling at the same time as you are? Some will be on your flight, but chances are you’re only going to recognize the faces of the six people that are sitting near you. Many of those people are traveling to a couple states over, across the country, to another continent. They could be they for a few days, a few weeks, or years. The idea of that many people moving about within one place is incredible to me.
The only thing I don’t like about airports is that knot in my stomach I get when a flight first takes off and the huge breath I take in and hold right before we land. Also, people getting motion sickness around me isn’t ideal.
My yearning to be in an airport was sparked by this post I found on Colossal on this set of screen prints by Nomo Designs of airport runways. Designer and architect Jerome Daksiewicz has created screen prints for some of the more popular airports, but has plans to expand the collection to include five more cities.
