    Been through Denver many times, and never paid any attention to the murals. I do like the art in the train tunnels - little propellers that spin in the breeze caused by the train.

    A little bit of trivia, but there are exactly 5,280 of those propellers.

    I'm assuming it's obvious why they picked that number.

    i tend to lean more toward the murals being just a the most expensive and leftist agenda that could be found during the construction. That airport should be used as a case study, along with the Boston Big DIg, on how corruption and political influence in public works projects works. Best part is after it is all said and done, the politcal patriarc that led to the massive waste usualy gets their name on it in a nearly diefied manner (the road to the Denver Airport is the Pena highway or something like that and Kennedy and forever congressman now dead who was involved who's name I can't remember is all over the big dig).

    I would have to say that it is a conspiracy. One to get governments to pay big bucks for jr high school level art talent. It screams "SUCKERS! I got rich off of you idiots!"

    In the Kilometer high city, there will only be 1000 propellers in the artwork. :D

    It seems like but there is a slight slope overall. You just can't see it. Plainview is actually 1,026 meters.

    Heh! If one desires to promote a conspiratorial agenda, about the least effective method would be complex art works in an airport. You're dang lucky if you can get people to read and make sense of a campaign poster or muster the attention span to listen to a simplistic radio spot geared to simpletons. Good luck depending on them to reflect thoughtfully on subtleties in public art.

    I guess that's the point, one type of subliminal is easy for the listener to 'tune-into' the other is going to just 'sit' there and be 'absorbed' by every passer-by that looks at it while in the airport and knowing no better...

    More of a concern is the videographer's lack of compliance with faa regulations. Electronic devices are required to be off during takeoff and landing.

    This gives credence to the theory that the video was put together by a terrorist group. Or so I heard.

    I've asked him about this and my source says that the camera was a mechanical device not utilising an electrical source. :)
