Exploring a psycho-geographic island

The itching necessity to continuously travel within Europe has led to the development of an ongoing documentary and experimental photographic and moving image archive. These events mostly take place within different transport infrastructures such in airports or central stations, or on planes, buses and trains. These kinds of enclosures, architectures and vehicles form transition points and boundary lines between political borders and geographical crossings. The documentation has looked at how behaviors and activities evolve as people move between the distinct perimeters of designated ‘public space’.

These works began as casual documentation episodes leading to a more keen interest, looking into such spaces as a potential arena and platform for artistic interaction with public space and private institutions. This has evolved into experimental performance works, public interactions, discrete spatial interventions and collaborative projects. This body of work simply attempts to provide an alternative way of moving in these spaces and aims to work with an intersection of embedded social behaviors and individual will. The focus has been on how people behave and move, how they ‘kill time’, and what kind of psychological states are experienced in such transitional environments.

It was a brief glimpse into the life of someone who is always on the move. Only dropping in to take a quick shower but stayed to take some pictures.
This was the last bus to ever take this route due to a lack of travellers regularly moving   between Poland and Slovakia.

A Flemish speaking accountant from Belgium gave away a few secrets on how to learn languages most efficiently. He similarly shared his secrets on how to solve puzzles but did not share my aesthetic appreciation of the puzzles page itself.

As one passes from Germany into Poland one can feel the difference in the quality of road. The highway was one of the first in Europe, built by the Germans in 1939 but never completed. It is slowly being repaired.

What is there to say about Ryan Air that has not been said already? The only comparison is the colorful experience one might get on the Countrylink train from Albury Wodonga to Sydney.
It is always interesting to note why new airports open and why others close. It could be a sign that economic power territories are shifting and therefore migrant workers can more easily fly in/fly out.
Speculations surrounding new airports do not correlate to city infrastructures. Without buses or trains operating in time for early departures, airports become temporary homes for those catching early flights on a regular basis.

Recently the landings have become a little more precarious than they used to be.

Have you ever left your luggage accidentally unattended only to later find all your possessions being carried away by the bomb squad? Me neither.
For all of the different kinds of people coming together in one place, in airports people only ever end up meeting those people they already know.
