The Installation: Inside The Tropospheric Laboratory

The "Tropospheric Laboratory" allows insights into cloud cores and other matter of the apogee. The installation narrates the synthesis of clouds and shows varying conditions and combinations of art and science in the absence of weight.
The "laboratory" is the gravimetric document of "Cloud Core Scanner" - an experiment and artistic project by Agnes Meyer-Brandis, carried out on board a German Aerospace Center research plane.
It reflects an iridescent world, between controlled and unleashed states: artistic research on the quest for a degree of reality within constructions.

Projection: Cloud Cores

Videostills from cloud cores in weightlessness, generated inside the ADM-Box - the so to say Cloud Core Visualisation Machine, which is part of the CCS experiment.

The Context: Subsurdum Wall

The Subsurdum Wall allows a deeper insight of the installation. It shows the context and surrounding world within which the artistic work and the CCS project have emerged.

Wanderkino and Lecture Performance: Making Clouds or On The Absence of Weight

The Wanderkino deals with the Art and Science under the absence of weight. As a mix of film, performance and lecture it shows flying machines with mechanisms based on gravity and weightlessness, examines cloud cores and presents a gravimetric documentation of an unusual experiment.
