Water, Air and Ice: Elemental Composting Across Art and Science
This presentation will follow on from Hunter and Wright’s project Rehearsals for Uncertain Futures, shared during sensingsite's Approaching Estate seminars in Spring 2019. For this session, they will pivot discussions around a new work on air pollution, created during a residency at Delfina Foundation, London. The artist duo will touch upon the relations of sites, bodies and anthropogenic materials, the role of simulation and technology within art and aesthetics and the ways in which experts and non-experts contribute to what an interdisciplinary inquiry is or can be.
Matterlurgy is a collaborative practice between London based artists Helena Hunter and Mark Peter Wright. Their work critically and creatively explores the intersections of art, ecology, science and technology: operating across multiple platforms including installation, performance and sound.
This event is the last in the series, documentation and recordings of all the seminars are available at:
