Once in awhile, I discover something unexpected during the course of my travels.. It could be a small magic of a restaurant that is tucked away in an alley somewhere in Kowloon or finding the perfect cologne in an unknown boutique in the Marais in Paris. These discoveries are the little vignettes of a city that add color to once adventure.
Such was the case during a layover in Phoenix when I stumbled upon this exhibition of Eco Trash Couture artist Nancy Judd. Domestic airports are finally stepping up to the plate by adding new elements to the dreaded layover. This small exhibition off to the side of the food court was a gem considering the items the artist used are common items such as Target bags, rusty nails and telephone directories. Pretty clever, I thought. It was a good diversion to what would have been an uneventful 15 minutes at the airport. So on your next airport layover, see if you discover something worthwhile.
