Getting your feet wet

Recent fly-over of the Delaware River?

Nope, a new carpet in the Sacramento International Airport. As seen in Boing Boing, pulled from the textile's creator Seyed Alavi's site, this image is of a the airports newly installed carpet. This carpet is woven with the image of the Sacremento River laid along the airport's skybridge. The shaggy green rug in my office just found its new replacement!

Created in a very interesting context of movement, destination, and belonging, Seyed states that his geographical tapestry is also intended for humor. Check out his description of the work.
