ONE WAY TICKET TO NOWHERE
by Tom Vanderbilt


TERMINAL. The world is cloaked in sober finality, and as a modifier it signposts an irreversible end. Now think of the phrase airport terminal. Strictly speaking the phrase makes sense - an airport terminal is where our journeys end. And yet, isn't it also where they begin? Increasingly, the terminal is not an end, but a way station. Which raises the question: when is the terminal ultimately…terminal?

INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MONTELLO: A TRAVELOGUE (PART TWO)
by JASON DEAN

September 14th: I woke up in the middle of the night after some last minute work on the t-shirts and hats I was working on for the gift shop at the airport. I was leaving a huge mess of sewing and ironing behind.

At 11:45 a.m., I already had one foot over the threshold of the Cowboy Bar in Montello, when, by raw coincidence, a white van with Utah plates pulled into the lot. I’d hoped to glean from the bartender if there really was such a thing as International Airport Montello, but the fortuitously timed arrival of an airport shuttle van answered my question.

Жители захолустья выдумали себе международный аэропорт

27 сентября 2006
За пять сотен баксов художники купили через Интернет 4 гектара земли в американской глубинке — беспросветном захолустье. “Здесь будет международный аэропорт”, — решили они. Все 66 жителей ближайшего городка поддержали идею и сообща распределили обязанности. Так появился самодельный международный аэропорт. Никто о нём не знает и не прилетает? Ничего страшного!

Construyendo un aeropuerto ficticio
Se está construyendo un pueblo a modo de un aeropuerto. No le falta de nada, incluido hotel y las tiendas de rigor. Por lo visto, alguien compró en Ebay un aeropuerto abandonado y todo un pueblo se ha puesto a reconstruir el pueblo en las instalaciones.

Project Runway - 9/22/06 - by Michael Wang
Wearing a modish flight-attendant uniform, Art in General programs manager Sofia Hernández Chong Cuy distributed packaged toiletries, an “airport map,” and vouchers for food, coffee, and shuttle rides to a group of seven arts patrons, curators, and writers packed inside the chartered plane headed for Las Vegas—by way of Montello, a small town in northeast Nevada.

INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MONTELLO: A TRAVELOGUE (PART ONE) by JASON DEAN\
August 14th:
I just got an email from Art In General with the subject 'International Airport Montello Layover Support Position Available'. Having gone to the lecture at Sara Meltzer Gallery, and looking at the Airport website at all of the different jobs people from Montello were 'working', I just assumed they were looking for another security guard or baggage handler for the airport, and that a new position had opened up at the airport itself, in Montello and I entertained the idea for a second, trying to figure out how it could work in NYC.

ETEAM: MONTELLO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, MONTELLO, NV
Recently I went to the Art in General artist talk at Sara Meltzer Gallery of Eteam's project “Montello International Airport.” I had briefly looked at Eteam's website before I went, and saw a photo from the project of the rolling stairs used for boarding aircraft, in the middle of the mountains with passengers waiting on it.
