Programme note

Postcards from Eden (i) Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) 10 hours Feb 2003 by Chris Adams

"So God sent them out of the Garden of Eden and made them cultivate the soil from which they had been formed."

Fake Palms
Blue and Green Fluorescents Oasis in a concrete jungle.

American Flag hanging limply
Between two concrete towers Like the defeated Sampson Set to bring the ceiling down.

Increased Security
More Freedom Only in America

Armed chairs discourage sleep

"Gateway to America" - Not a place to stop.
