The exhibition investigates how geometric aspects of space such as size, shape or relative position of figures are perceived and influence behaviour, not in an abstract sense but in ways that are real. Drawn from an international open call, the exhibition features recent work by artists, architects and researchers, who are addressing this subject through projects and texts.
Works in the exhibition include a giant self-balancing mechanism, a working time machine, and forensic photography that captures your movements before the picture was taken. These are just some of the works on show. Each work explores a different type of energy and is created by a team consisting of an artist, architect and scientist.
Directed by Stefano Rabolli Pansera, the exhibition is part ofÂ Beyond Entropy, an ambitious two-year project from the AA School, involving 24 leading scientists, architects and artists working together to explore and broaden the ways we think about energy. Before coming to London, Beyond Entropy has been shown in Europe including at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2010 and Societe de Lecture, Geneva.
Alex Lorente of the AA’s Membership department introduced Stefano Rabolli Pansera, who gave a guided tour of the Beyond Entropy exhibition currently in the AA Gallery.
