In January 2018 London College of Communication’s Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice research group will present Large Objects Moving Air 2018 – a one day conference exploring the presence, agency and materiality of air from the microscale to macroscale, through both literal and figurative interpretations.
What comes to mind when one thinks about air? Air is everywhere and nowhere. It is a carrier of frequencies, energies, vibrations, toxins, pollutants and blast waves. It supports life and is a site of communication. It is clouds and The Cloud. Who owns it? Can it be owned? Who or what are the agents in the transmission and circulation of air? How does it circulate and what circulates within it?
The conference will include a range of prestigious and influential speakers, including keynotes J.R. Carpenter , Laura Cannell and Chris Watson.
