breathing. space. no. 9: lift lecture

I gave a 30 minute lecture, “Air–Atmospheres–Breath–Affects,” in a public elevator at the RMIT Design Hub to a group of ten students. The lift space moved up and down according to the demands of other building users, and there were noticeable changes in air temperature between the lift itself, upper floors and the ground floor and basement levels. The presentation set up an unexpected environment for others to step into, a chance encounter with a short fragment of the lecture as they moved between floors. As a performance, the lecture created an intimate space where breath was shared, and the elevator was understood as a means of shifting parcels of air around the building.

Thanks to Scott Andrew Elliott for holding the projector!
