This essay proceeds to a psychoanalysis of the international airport, surveying its subconscious and its imaginary world.

It combines several fantasies in their most concentrated and hysterical form : the fantasy of instantaneous circulation, of unlimited shopping, of unavoidable disaster, of absolute surveillance.
