Grace Pappas

Creative designer

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.

Fly with Aerocene Pacha online screening

Saturday, 25th at 13 GMT

Watch a one-time screening of the fourth and final chapter of Fly with Aerocene Pacha.

Fly with Aerocene Pacha helped us to re-imagine the way in which we move, and how we might move differently in the future. It connected many communities through a common goal, while raising voices in unison against harmful lithium extraction practices in northern Argentina.
