Project description:
“Anti-Air: Air, or the invisible atmosphere that surrounds us, can be activated. Air can be transformed naturally or artificially into an “anti-air.” Twenty-four slaughterhouse workers have reported symptoms of extreme numbness and paralysis. Researchers find that brain mist, a microscopic industrial byproduct, can impair human motor functions when inhaled. The atmosphere was first understood to be a weapon at the 1915 battle of Ypres when German troops deployed chlorine gas to poison the environment of their Canadian opponents. Instead of harming human flesh, the environment that sustains life was targeted. For German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk, the rise of environmental warfare marks a radical departure for the modern mind.
”Ventilation is the profound secret of existence.”
