An increasing amount of airports are choosing to combat the stress of flying with art installations and galleries for passengers. Photography exhibits in particular have sprung up as a popular way to ‘see’ a region, and San Francisco International Airport is taking the lead in providing such opportunities.
The glitchy, colour corrupted images that make up Jehad Nga’s The Green Book Project seem like they have been pulled off of a destroyed hard drive. Images that were forced from the unwilling grasp of some digital purgatory and thrust into the light of day.
