ON A RUNWAY

Tsampazi invited twelve participants to stand in a field in a horizontal line. Each holds a small mirror, reflecting the sunlight into the camera—creating a sense of code. The twelve walk towards the camera when the sun goes behind the clouds. The line breaks apart. The action took place in Northerly Island Park in Chicago, a place which was a single strip airport that operated from December 1948 until March 2003.
