TRAVELLERS are creatures caught between two worlds. They are neither where they anticipate, nor where they were, but on a featureless white concourse or grey station platform, considering the void. A smartphone will fill that, to a point; but it does not quite smooth the edge of their anxiety and displacement.

    The travelers, as they stand on the platform, are essentially stuck in limbo, with nothing to do but consider the void.
