Keep Direction By Good Methods (in progress) follows the physical remains of the United States’ transcontinental lighted airway of the 1920s and ‘30s throughout the American landscape. The system, the largest of its kind in the world, consisted of rotating beacons atop large steel towers used to visually guide pilots from point to point across the country. Now, nearly a century later, very few of the original towers remain, often leaving behind large arrow-shaped foundations pointing forth to the expansive terrain ahead.
