Air Mapping will take place on 24th and 25th of Junly in The Archive Gallery (London), in the frame of Human Nature exhibition
I used the residency time to continue my research from 2012 that took place in Cork/ Ireland, where I started to work with science. For the purpose of this event I chose to concentrate on chaos theory, game structure, mapping and walking art. I wanted to create a space where the input of visitors will have a visible outcome, so the Air Mapping game was introduced. It is an inter-active game for audience visiting the exhibition. Next to every art piece in a gallery, a related proposals/ instructions can be found. Through choosing one or many, the apparatus of the game is put to life. By participation, movement created by doing tasks visitors, the air movement in the space gets activated as well This event is mapped by balloons filled with helium, that have attached string with coal and thus can draw the effect on the paper lying below on the floor.
Air Mapping project was created during a week art residency for choreographers during the exhibition “For Each Gesture Another Character” in gallery art of Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk in Poznan/ Poland.
