Fifty Cities

1999
Nikki Bell, Ben Langlands

LHR, CGN, VIE and 47 other codes of major airports decorate a bench in the Herttoniemi district by Tuoriniemi beach. Why not prepare an outdoor menu inspired by different countries and focus on daydreaming of travels to come?

The work itself has traveled to Eastern Helsinki from a contemporary arts park in West Sussex, England. The British artist couple has wished that their piece provokes travel-related thoughts.

The light-toned stone bench can be admired from beside it, lying in the grass or why not from the water while taking a dip in the sea!
