Official Exhibition Opening

Join us in the celebration of the exhibition opening of Dynamics of Air and get a preview before the official first day on September 14. 
How do designers, artists, scientists and researchers work with an intangible atmospheric medium such as air? 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.

Through a stunning survey of commissioned and current projects, this exhibition will engage with the interface of air, lived space and architecture. Dynamics of Air will explore themes of aesthetics and representation, experiential environments and atmospheres, inflatable structures, architectural surface and microturbulence.

Featuring artists and designers including: Thomas Auer – Transsolar, Friedrich von Borries and Edith Kollath (Germany), Philippe Rahm (Switzerland / France), Enric Ruiz Geli (Spain), Breathe Earth Collective (Austria), Little Wonder (Gyungju Chyon & John Sadar USA), and from Australia; Natasha Johns-Messenger, Cameron Robbins, Malte Wagenfeld, Chris Cottrell, Simon Watkins, Jane Burry, and Steve Howden (3D Inflate).

The exhibition is curated by Dr. Malte Wagenfeld from RMIT University, and Jane Burry, Professor at Swinburne University of Technology.
