Abstract

The public's perceptions and expectations of flight attendants and the airline industry are highly skewed and far from reality. As a microcosm of the real world it mirrors society. Racism exists, terrorism is a constant concern, and the female flight attendant is still a victim of sexist attitudes and practices. Through the use of installation, photography, audio, and video I will explore these issues in depth offering a rare view into the behind the scenes world of the flight attendant.
