A personal engagement with the thoughts of the french anthropologist Marc Augé, who created the term non-locations (Nicht-Orte), at those locations like airports and airplanes Augé notices the absence of history, relation and identity.

»Just like an air bubble under water you can ascend to layers of the sky, that nullify the contradictions of mankind. You can slow down the flight of swarms with the blink of an eye. You can see the chemistry of the sky, as it is scintillating in all directions. But you cannot touch them, the clouds that melt away under the red sinking sun.«
