The Wind Tunnel Model

The rejection of an artistic research that writes only about research and about art. The rejection of problem thinking that searches for solutions, but offering a solution, that searches for problems. The construction of an open space, thinking space and meeting place that survives in the institutional logic of booking rooms, because a wind tunnel can no longer be cleared away. The work on nature, on control and loss of control. The wind tunnel as a mold that gives form to the wind. Anyhow, to give the ephemeral not only a place but also a form.
