BODY SCANNING HAS BEEN A CHARGED ISSUE IN TODAY’S NEWS. AS FLYING BECOMES MORE COMMON PLACE, SO DOES THE PROCESS OF CHECKING IN, AND WAITING IN THE SECURITY LINE BEFORE YOU CAN GET TO YOUR GATE. PLAYING OFF THIS SEEMINGLY NORMAL PROCEDURE, THE LINE SCANNER INTENSIFIES THE ALREADY UNCOMFORTABLE SITUATION OF STANDING IN THE SECURITY LINE AT THE AIRPORT. THE DESIGN IS AN AUTOMATED APERTURE SUSPENDED ABOVE THE EXISTING SECURITY LINE THAT FOLLOWS ALONG THE TRACK, LEADING TO THE GATE. IF THE SCANNER DETECTS SOMETHING SUSPICIOUS, THE 2 ARMS WILL BEGIN TO ROTATE AROUND THE PERSON, AND FLASH RED LIGHTS. THE RED HORNS ON THE EXTERIOR ARE RESEMBLING INTIMIDATION. AS THE SCANNER ROTATES, IT WILL CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR OF ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE IN LINE, TO PHYSICALLY TAKE A STEP AWAY FROM THE TARGETING PERSON. THE SCANNER CHANGES HUMAN BEHAVIOR, AND EXPOSES PEOPLE’S RAW EMOTIONS OF PROFILING STRANGERS THAT ARE IN THE SAME SECURITY LINE.
