Large Objects Moving Air 2018 is a one day conference exploring the presence, agency and materiality of air from the microscale to macroscale, through both literal and figurative interpretations. We are looking for papers exploring the materialities of air, vibration, politics and power from researchers, writers and artists within the sciences, humanities, arts and other creative disciplines.

The theme of the conference relates to works that reflect (but are not limited to) the following areas around the literal / metaphorical / abstracted examples of the movement of large bodies on a range of scales:

● Meteorology
● Acoustic ecology
● Nuclear culture and the military industrial complex
● Protest movements, propaganda and the voice
● Media Infrastructures
● Technocapitalism
● Bass and soundsystem culture
● Unsound / Infrasonics / Ultrasonics / EEG
● Atmospherics
