At John F. Kennedy Airport, passengers arriving from long-haul flights enter the terminal looking for contact with someone familiar. The footage was shot on camcorders equipped with telephoto lenses and slowed down to emphasize the moment of transition that each subject experiences as they arrive. The installation consists of 4 screens, with a 1-second delay between the identical images in each screen.

Four airport monitors suspended in custom enclosures with ceiling mounts. 09:00 min., loop.
