Abstract

LungSong is a 60 minute performance that calls attention to life at all scales. A performance cosmology and a call to action, this performance generates affinities between scientific research on climate change and artistic innovation. In contemplating an apocalypse of the skies, from one of the places in the world with the cleanest air, LungSong, became a meeting place for artists and scientists to engage in research that resisted the ‘forgetting of air’ (Irigaray 1999).
