Morphology of the Aerial

Mint Park 2021

During her residency Mint Park will research and develop a new work “Morphology of the Aerial”, a continuation of her studies in air turbulence.

“Neither chaotic nor predictable, as functions of space and time in fluid dynamics, turbulence creates patterns that are dependent upon the velocity, pressure, density and temperature conditions. 

‘Morphology of the Aerial’ creates a series of palpable yet ephemeral experiences of ever morphing landscapes by revealing the progress of site-specific airflow patterns as an installation, a composition and a performance. The project will take a closer look at the relationship between fluid dynamics and its audio-visual aftermath in air patterns using turbulent and non-turbulent interfaces created by different intensity of air pressure and temperature changes brought on to the atmosphere. The series of spatial experiments will not only include the scientific research in pneumatic engineering, thermodynamic mixing, and new materiality, but also aesthetical investigation in creating a visceral multi-sensorial audio-visual narrative.”

iii’s residency program is made possible through the additional support of Creative Industries Fund NL
