Amid is an installation created by Inés Cámara Leret and Jes Cahn-Thompson. A real-time sonification of air in response to minute-to-minute changes of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and ozone gases. The gases are assigned specific tones and notes. As detected levels increase and decrease in the space, the musicality follows up and down scale.
Curation by Olivia Aherne, Lizzie Cottrell, Emily Davis, Evie Gurney, Nilz Källgren, Helene Remmel, Alistair Small and the Royal College of Art.
