Evoking the mystery of crop circles, these prints of context-free airport runways create a gorgeous secret code. Buy one to decipher in your own home or office and $2 of the sale goes to charity.

The Runways project began in 2009 while living in Phoenix and mapping some aerial photographs near Sky Harbor airport. I really liked the simplicity of the diagrams and the runway’s radiused connections. I liked the airport codes, some forming an abbreviated identity for the city, some with a different story to tell. These lines are the gateways to our cities, connecting our dots.
