Terminal 5 really feels great, like representative of the city it’s in. Walking around you feel like you’re in one of those airport based films when they have the shots of the rolling suitcases and the stylish business man in a suit and tie on the phone with his express coffee to go.
Although the airport is stunning I have to say it does everything to the best standard but doesn’t offer anything that hasn’t been in an airport before. I heard you take a tube style train from the airplane to the baggage collection but not actually having been on a flight I can’t verify that. Was a great mini exhibition about ‘My grandfather’s car’ which held my attention for a rather long period of time, some beautiful photographs accompanied by a short film.
I have come to the conclusion some black frames like the ones on display are needed to exhibit some old family pictures, so I’ll take that on as another challenge.
I still need to write that piece on arrivals and departures with some accompanying photographs, I’m sure I could pick up some really nice stories but it’s about whether I could sum up the guts to ask people when they just want to get home.
