Dubai Airport (2016)


You might wonder how this video relates to this post. Well, when en-route to Tokyo or London, when travelling to or from work, there is a lot of hanging around at Dubai airport. Over the years I’ve got accustomed to being swallowed up in this over-bearing vacuum for seven hours. So, what do you do? Erm…people watching, rotoscoping, reading, dozing or just aimlessly  wandering around the vile duty-free shops. These are just a few strategies to kill time and boredom.

So, amid the chaos, the chic, the shoppers and the bulging trolleys; this hedonistic space is where I put pen to paper. The vignettes that are churned out are generally in the form of family memoirs. Even though Dubai airport is not a desired and stimulating environment for writing , quite staggeringly, the scribbled, crumpled pieces of paper manage to survive the journey, stay in one piece and somehow make their to a wider audience and onto print. Strange but true. The proof is in the pudding below and I ain’t no writer!
