This sculpture consisted of two parts, created for two separate but related sites - the beams at either side of the Airport's escalators. The artist collected a vast and varied array of common objects, then wrapped them with white surveyor's tape. While ascending or descending the escalators, curious travelers may have recognized things or parts of things which they perhaps had left behind, articles they were transporting with them, or items they might have encountered at their destination.
