THE SPACE OF AIR
Duration : 19.15 min
What kind of relation can we weave between human bodies and the space of Air?
Moving in the affective troposphere for embodied ways of sensing the air, this moving image piece acts as an affective and meteorologic presence to enter a different temporality and space-time, bringing spectators into new experiential and spatial possibilities.

The Space of Air is part of an experimental research project, a triptych presenting three different scales of experiments to reinforce our bodily bound with air, the space we inhabit. Enquiring about the relation between bodies and the space of Air, the invisible spiritual matter that holds primal life energy and acts as a continuum between the Earth and our bodies ecologies the project investigates ways of creating new embodied experiences in which the body is a sensing territory continually vibrating, pulsing and mingling with Air.
