Aeriameter is an instrument for examining airborne specimens from the Chicago neighborhood Pilsen. Focused on air pollution from the Fisk Generating Station, I got curious about other kinds of phenomena that are invisible to the naked eye, but can fill a space and affect our bodies. Visitors can press the forward button, adjust tone and volume, and identify each slide in the accompanying guide. (Text in video is for documentation purposes)
Aeriameter was created during a residency at the Experimental Sound Studio (Chicago), with invaluable help from Alex Inglizian. It was also partially supported by a Community Arts Assistance Program grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
