Traveling with Moment Factory

Moment Factory project at LAX airport terminal

Ever since I was child, I have enjoyed traveling on planes and always get a buzz from airports. The to-ing and fro-ing of people, the architecture of the airport terminals, the expansive windows, offering views of planes taking off and landing… and oh yes, also the shops, cafes and news stands, to do some browsing (or shopping) while waiting to board my flight.

How cool would it be, if adding to all of the usual travel excitement, airport terminals were kitted out with a bunch of multimedia features, such as interactive capsules, 3D effects and interactive panels which react directly to people’s movements? That would make travel even more fun!

Well, that is exactly what is on offer as of this month, at the New Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) starts operating.  Check out the demo to see what you can expect to find should you find yourself in this new terminal:

This wonderful immersive multimedia system was created by Montreal based company Moment Factory, who were appointed the executive producers of this project. You may remember them from last year’s La Mercè multimedia show at the Sagrada Familia, which I mentioned in this blog post.

Lives on the Route

Yesterday evening saw the opening of an exhibition of photos by Federico Frangi, who travelled almost 6,000 km on a motorbike (!!) from Delhi to the kingdom of Bhutan, all the way across Nepal and Sikkim, to record snippets of daily life there with his 35 mm and medium format (analog) Rollei cameras.

Snippets of daily life

Originally from Argentina, Federico has been a Barcelona resident for many years, and worked for quite some time as a graphic designer. But since  a motorcycle trip in the Northern part of India (Ladhak) in 2009 he has dedicated himself exclusively to photography.
