Airports are machines of mobility. They enact a series of procedural moments through which cars dock-in to the curbside of the air terminal, objects are commodified as cargo, and people are launched into the air. Airports are designed around a series of flows. Like any technological hub, they are designed to optimise traffic (in this instance, people, baggage, cargo, planes and motor vehicles). Objects lock in and out of their ‘terminal nodes’, never crossing paths as they engage in series of procedural manoeuvres that move elements (both human and non-human) into different dimensions.

This interactive digital archive focuses on flow management at Sydney Airport by tracking its processes as an uploading and downloading machine, but also a shopping mall, a point of drama, an urban capsule in a liminal space.
