Philippe Rahm: Anthropocene Style

San Francisco Art Institute

Swiss architect Philippe Rahm is known internationally for his groundbreaking work in the context of sustainability. His new installation at SFAI investigates questions around aesthetic choice: By what process does an architect, a designer, and even a painter or sculptor choose a material or a color for an artwork? What are the criteria for choosing one material over another, one color over another?

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Philippe Rahm: Anthropocene Style :

Internationally renowned Paris-based Swiss artist and architect Philippe Rahm has created an immersive, participatory experience around a series of new experimental textiles, combining emissive tapestries and effusive carpeting with spectral light, all of which will be calibrated to interact with human body heat, to rethink architecture's relationship to climate change.
