A curtained container, open on all sides, flutters and billows - inviting people to meet wind, to encounter and think through and with meteorological forces. Each day, over four days, four people with four different practices will conduct experimental, generative, collaborative meetings with wind – an open platform for transversal experimentation. Four times a day, people will gather in the container around a round table with a draft agenda for meteorological encounters with medium, matter and movement. Each meeting will be a period of time to re-view, re-orientate, re-turn, re-wind; to discuss and propose new strategies. The meeting format affords playful, earnest, inclusive, experimental ‘scores’ that will exercise us and enable us to meet other kinds of flows. wind meeting will produce a composition of generative airstreams; a summit, to disperse and scatter.
