Motion flapboard swaps airport announcements with other statements

Know these mechanical alphabet-by-alphabet motion flapboards at the airport that make flight announcements? Mumbai-based interdisciplinary artist Shilpa Gupta’s work, 24:00:01 — so named to represent a time that does not exist, or a space that cannot exist within conventional boundaries — takes the flapboard out of its familiar airport setting and displays statements inspired by themes such as migration, location, dislocation and terrorism in a meditative manner.
