Jordan Geiger's Day for Night, part of Who's On First? / What's On Second? is a "robotic exoskeleton that slowly alters the space in which it is installed." It will premiere at the 01SJ Festival in June. Friday, March 14, Geiger has co-curated with Alison Sant the exhibition Vapor at Southern Exposure.
The show will feature a survey of new art, architecture and design that takes our declining air quality as the subject matter, medium and metaphor for creative work. Often inspired by forms of activism, the works react to the sources of climate change through the use of technologies - sensors, databases, and communications equipment - that are only recently accessible outside a lab. In this sense, the show's title also refers to the growing means by which this art is being produced, in addition to the ubiquity of greenhouse gases and other air conditions that serve as this art's medium. Vapor proposes new ways of modeling, testing and finding solutions to the problems of air quality and greenhouse gas emissions.
