title says it all.
I'm here at Narita Airport, on my way back to San Francisco from Okinawa. I'm alive, didn't get bitten by a Habu snake or run over by a Marine. More on Okinawa later...
Following my interest in how to represent exclusive, forbidden spaces, I got this idea as I was going through the usual routine of the airport security check. I took my recorder and mics out of my pocket and was about to stuff them in my bag when it occurred that I could actually do a little military exploration here. I switched on record, slipped it in the bag, and through the black flaps it went, a satellite probe into one of the most forbidden, fortified, and controlled spaces of the 21st century: the carry-on x ray machine.
