If you’ve traveled through Albany International Airport sometime over the past few years, then the life-size, foamcore car and trailer exhibit now on Concourse D at Portland International Airport may look familiar.

Titled “The Quest,” and created by Ken Ragsdale, the work represents “the ideology of exploration and the memory process by which things are remembered.”

At PDX, the 16-foot-long station wagon and teardrop travel trailer are suspended 11 feet above the ground and, according to Ragsdale, “illustrate the mechanics of navigation between people and time, and the analysis of memory and reality.”
