PER-FORMING CLOUDS

2016+

Per-Forming Clouds is investigating into the possibilities of action within various  ecologies to sculpt, design and articulate through gaseous materials.

 

First, it's immersive and volatile qualities can bring new potentials for interactions, second, aesthetically clouds invite us for deeper sensorial engagements, and third, metaphorically it poses questions about dealing with the unknown and known around us.

 

Starting in a workshop format to understand water as an agent to shape larger phenomena, we can observe its qualities differently, boiling and condensation points, dropping sounds or windy noise, furthermore investigating with heating systems inside hermetic containers.

While diving into different scales, vapor becomes a coating agent on receptive micro-surface structures, a carrier for various flavors and nutritions in molecular kitchen, conditioning social bubbles, or affect air conditions in the workshop space itself. The gaseous material as a mediator has been built up imposing its own rules while being designed to study processes, that might happen with us all time.

 

In the outcome, the project is set as per-formative and participatory exhibition hybrid with documented protocol sheets and volatile appetizers to try out.
