Grace Pappas is currently a lecturer at the Royal College of Arts and the University of Bedfordshire, Grace has been employing archaeology and engineering to explore the intra-actions of bodies and spaces. By shifting the attention to the intangible forces surrounding physical matter, she has been constructing stories and environments puppeteered by time, gravity, temperature and interaction. Within Aerocene, she has been reimagining payloads as floating bodies that are in direct communication with their surrounding atmospheres and forces. Using the appropriate materials, these analog payloads animate in response to barometric and mechanical changes experienced during flight. Through community workshops with Palais de Tokyo, Fab City Paris and Royal Holloway University, she has been exploring the potential of such technologies in Aerocene flight navigation, cut down mechanisms as well as bio-air sampling.
