In the HVAC&R industry we usually think of air dynamics as the domain of engineers. But coming to Melbourne is an art exhibition that approaches the subject from new and creative angles.
From September 14 to November 10, RMIT Gallery in partnership with the Goethe Institut is presenting Dynamics of Air, curated by Dr Malte Wagenfeld (RMIT) and Professor Jane Burry (Swinburne University).
“How do designers, artists, scientists and researchers work with an intangible atmospheric medium such as air?” asks the Gallery. “Explore it, alter it, adjust it, feel it, smell it, walk through it, languish in it?
“This highly innovative exhibition showcases design and creative practice research, capturing the beauty, dynamics and sensuality of air in our built environment and its critical role in designing for a zero carbon future.
“Bringing together leading local and international practicing designers, artists, architects, researchers and students, Dynamics of Air explores radical innovations for creative sustainability in design and the built environment.”
A series of events, lectures and performances will be scheduled over the eight weeks of the exhibition. The aim is to engage more closely with the city of Melbourne and the state of Victoria.
The Gallery is expecting the exhibition to appeal to a wide audience – from architects, designers and engineers to artists, academics and students.
