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.

For their exhibition in Cleve Carney Art Gallery Luftwerk will be creating a sixty-foot long mural that merges the fundamental languages of morse code with that of color theory. Using the dots and dashes of the universal call for distress, S.O.S. , this work will stretch across the entire West wall of the gallery.
