Referring to the lowest atmospheric layer and literally meaning ‘sphere of change’, the troposphere is the site of weather, turbulence and atmospheric transformation. Inspired by this mutability ‘Troposphere’ was an exhibition of systems-based sculptural works that were concerned with spatial, broadcast and environmental phenomena (flight data, light, atmospheric pressure). The main projection in the exhibition used live-transmission information received from passing planes – combined with images of the sky – as a form of live electronic writing, updated each time another plane enters the range of the receiver.
Pallas Projects/Studios is an artist-run organisation dedicated to the facilitation of artistic production and discourse, via the provision of affordable artists studios in the city centre, and curated projects.
