Summary: “No-Man’s Land”explores the ambiguous territory of modern airports, a kind of limbo that is neither here nor there.

The vast expanse of runways is interrupted by mysterious signals and markers, as well as by circus-like caravans of luggage carts. The noses of planes loom against plate glass, which reflects the ubiquitous neon of fast food and luxury shops. And passengers wait in anonymous gray-carpeted holding areas, surrounded by aluminum panels–as if the whole edifice might suddenly take off.

What does it mean to be nowhere? How does passing through No-Man’s Land add to an anxiety of displacement, as well as to an ease of possible escape?
