Howell Exhibits Inflatable Sculpture Exploring Data, Air, and Feeling

Noura Howell stands in front of her inflatable sculpture "Infrastructural Membranes."

Posted May 13, 2022

Infrastructural Membranes is an inflatable sculpture by LMC Assistant Professor Noura Howell that explores taken-for-granted infrastructures of data, air, and feeling. About the size of a studio apartment, this pop-up sculpture takes up space and calls attention to the tubes, systems, and structures weaving through and under and around daily life — whether HVAC systems that monitor and optimize air in modern buildings, gargantuan bundles of cables spanning the globe for the internet, or emergent surveillance structures that measure and distort emotions.
