Current Air | 150 Media Stream

February 01

Drawing inspiration from the visualization of atmospheric conditions, Current Air, borrows from the graphic language of meteorology to create a hybridized visual current of color, image, and pattern. This video hints to scientific expressions of temperature, moisture, and wind allowing for free associations of the viewer. Developed to activate 150 Media Stream with vibrant colors, it draws from the fluid dynamic of the adjacent Chicago River.

White Wanderer | Making New History | Chicago Architecture Biennial

White Wanderer | NRDC Booth @ EXPO CHICAGO / 2017

White Wanderer | Two Riverside Plaza

September 03

White Wanderer takes inspiration from the Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica, which broke off into the Weddell Sea in July 2017 – forever altering the landscape of the continent. Using real life recordings of the sounds and frequencies of calving ice bergs, along with satellite imagery of the 120-mile Larsen C crack, Luftwerk brings this remote place to life to deepen public understanding of the connection between climate change and sea level rise. The project is the culmination of a yearlong collaboration with NRDC, with additional help from the University of Chicago.

White Wanderer will be on display at Two Riverside Plaza, Chicago IL Sept 7th – Oct 1st and at Navy Pier as part of EXPO CHICAGO from Sept 13 – Sept 17 in booth #829
