Still from Rachel Reupke’s Infrastructure, 2002, DVD, 14 min

ok, i could do without the cheesy ad talky voice but if you watch these new delta ads (below), sans sound, the imagery is pretty nice… a few of the shots remind me of my favorite londoner, rachel reupke’s, video art piece, Infrastructure.

i would like to think of flying as a glamorous event again (instead of a waste of hours of my life/complete hell) and these black and white pieces succeed in making the airport, the planes (their sleek/powerful forms), and zipping through the atmosphere all seem sort of sexy again. the negative flying experiences people have become so used to definitely could use a glamour injection! if only delta would get their stewards/stewardesses back in hot pants, i would book a flight right now.

An interview with Rachel talking a bit about Infrastructure.
