Weather Patterns: the Smell of Red
Immersive Installation by Erin Manning and Nathaniel Stern, with Marcelino Barsi, Mike Hornblow + Juliana España Keller.
Curated as part of Glasshouse residency program by Jennifer Johung
June 1, opening reception: 7-9 PM
A proposition: Co-compose weather
A technique: Weather Pattern
A process: Register the environmental conditions in a series of relational cross-currents. Make felt how smell and color co-compose. Enfold the participant in an active ecology of the world, attuning to difference.
Weather Patterns: the Smell of Red proposes a counterpoint of movement, smell, taste and color. The feedback loops between air currents and mist, spices and electronics, architectural and sculptural elements, stasis and interaction, amplify how movement and transformation are sensed. The work seeks to create the conditions for the exploration of those thresholds of experience where change is barely perceptible. It asks how the smell of red affects the event of time.
