Employing heating, ventilation and air conditioning ductwork, brothers Billy and Steven have created a text work announcing the assumed function of this type of air handling system.
Referencing the scale and style of large scale graffiti lettering, this work is functionally inept: it is a fake, and provides no air, instead speculating on the limits of the conspicuous infrastructure we create to regulate our comfort.
The raw material for this work was sourced through RAIR: an artist in residency program, co-founded by Billy, and piloted by the brothers between 2009 – 2011.
