Malte Wagenfeld – Aesthetics of Air

Industrial designer Malte Wagenfeld will exhibit a series of installations using lasers and fog that give us a glimpse into the stunning complexity and beauty of air.

Malte Wagenfeld, who is also the Program Director of Industrial Design at RMIT University, will allow us to contemplate how we might work with this medium.

Air envelopes us in sensual effect. It can warm or chill us, it carries smell and sound; breezes stimulate the skin, and wind can literally move us; sometimes we can even taste the air. Although we cannot see air, it reveals its presence to the eye through swaying branches and windswept landscapes, and the particulates it carries – dust, smoke and fog. The latter is the focus of this installation: using fog, smoke, lasers and other devices air is rendered visible.
