Landing Pages is a project by Gideon Jacobs and Lexie Smith that delivers stories to travelers in flight.

From April to June 30th, 2018, passengers boarding a plane at LaGuardia Airport’s Marine Terminal (Terminal A) can visit the Landing Pages kiosk and drop off their flight number and phone number or email. Once their plane is airborne, Smith and Jacobs will have the duration of their flight to write them a story. These stories may take many forms—prose, poetry, illustration, and more—but all stories will arrive on the passenger’s phone when their flight touches down and they regain cell service. If a passenger isn’t comfortable giving their contact information, they can find their story at www.LandingPages.nyc, which will serve as a public archive for all the stories written.

The Landing Pages kiosk will also serve as a workspace for Jacobs and Smith, and exist as a living archive for the project. Every story will be printed and displayed in real time, and copies will be made available for all visitors to take home as a free souvenir.
