(What is) The Nature of Los Angeles Series

PANEL 2: AIRBORNE LA

The air of Los Angeles has always been a contentious, turbulent and magical territory. Artists, film-makers, writers, environmentalists and scientists have found both inspiration and conflict in its thickness, its refractions, its particulates and luminosities. Airborne L.A. will explore the current understanding of this ephemeral phenomenon as well as ideas for a propositional future: how can a new nature occupy this layer of the city? Is "air/light," this at once sublime and sinister effect of pollution, already a manifestation of such a hybrid? Filtration systems and deodorizing facilities have already become surreal civic solutions and lichen transplants on high-rise façades provide a visual pollution monitoring system. Come join a spirited debate about the peculiar magic of airborne particles, the unique light of Los Angeles, sprawl, the sublime and grotesque effects of pollution, airborne ecologies and animal strategies.
