How is a magic trick like an airport?

“Excessive Wire,” a 180-foot-long mural by artist Michael Fajan, has been at Seattle-Tacoma Worldwide Airport (SEA) since 1993.

In 11 panels, Fagan depicted a magician and his assistant performing a magic trick.

Relying on which path you view the art work, it both depicts an individual disappearing right into a magic field or exhibits an individual rising from it.

For years the art work was on a hall wall in Concourse D the place crowds of passengers made it tough to see. However in 2021, “Excessive Wire” was cleaned and reinstalled above the Concourse A hall.

And in its new location, it’s a lot simpler to see.

However what about that magician within the portray? Seems he’s an actual Seattle-area magician named Jonathan Docter.

SEA just lately shared the video under displaying the magician on the airport, standing underneath the art work, telling the story of how he got here to be portrayed within the portray.

And he reveals the connection between magic and the airport.

“Touring by air is a magical expertise. You’re in a single metropolis after which after a few hours of flying on this massive tube that we name an airplane or a jet, you’re transported to a different world, one other metropolis. Nearly as if by magic.”

Not nearly…
