White Wanderer | Two Riverside Plaza

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

Robert Rauschenberg Artist Residency

The Midnight Special

Luftwerk is pleased to be included in The Midnight Special at Volume Gallery, 1709 W Chicago Ave, Chicago IL, 60622.

Featuring works by Bec Brittain, Benas Burdulis, Bureau Spectacular, Aaron Jones, Thomas Leinberger, Luftwerk, Jonathan Muecke, and Anders Ruhwald, The Midnight Special is an exploration of the different forms and characteristics of light. These works open a dialogue between the physicality of objects and the immaterial properties of the light which they manipulate or project, examining how the corporeal can influence the ethereal.
