Date:  Thurs, 5 Dec 2019
Time:  19:00 – 21:00
Venue:  Delfina Foundation
Booking:  Please see below for details

Join us for an evening of critical discussion, performative presentations and live VR demos with Delfina UK Associate duo Matterlurgy (Helena Hunter and Mark Peter Wright) in collaboration with the Digital Maker Collective.

During their residency Matterlurgy are working with the materiality of air, focusing on the composition of pollution particles, their causes, effects and morphological agency.

The event will include conversations on how art and aesthetics interacts with toxic materials; what kind of stories might be deployed through technologies such as virtual reality; and how geopolitics are located in atmospheric thinking and being.


Due to the limited spaces available, we ask those who wish to join this event to email (subject line: ‘AIR_MORPHOLOGIES’) with a few sentences on why you would like to attend. The event is open to all and no prior knowledge or experience is required, only an interest in the subject and activities of the evening itself.


Season one of science technology society is in partnership with Gaia Art Foundation.
