Sjaak Langenberg, ‘Mental expansion of Schiphol Airport’ (1999)

The school canteen of Cals College in the Dutch town of IJsselstein was connected live, at varying times each day, with the announcement headquarters of Amsterdam Airport, Schiphol. This audio art-work was provoked by the link between noise pollution around Schiphol airport and the Lopik broadcasting mast, which causes IJsselstein particular nuisance.



Electroboutique, ‘AirPort’ (2009)

AirPort is placed in a forest, between trees and bushes. The huge departures display shows flight numbers, departures times, gates, airlines and destinations. All information is displayed in real time. A female voice announces changes in the timetable, last calls and other information that is usually announced at airports.
