Dressing The Air is the brainchild of the London-based artist Paul Schütze.

In a career spanning 30 years, Schütze has exhibited his photographic and installation works in galleries and museums around the world, released over thirty albums of original recordings, scored a number of films and performed numerous concerts. He has collaborated with artists such as James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien and musicians as diverse as Bill Laswell, Raoul Björkenheim, Toshinori Kondo, Lol Coxhill and Jah Wobble.

Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

Infinite Tokyo

In an extrapolation which goes to the heart of what DTA is all about, we are here forced to guess( from photographs only) that this is a very interesting project. It appears to present an enormously complex combination of mapping, projection, reflection and 3D printed models which act as a diagram of Tokyo's Yamanote metro line. This line is circular and is represented within this huge reflective kaleidoscope, to scale with pertinent details picked out. From the evidence of these photographs, the environment created is a dynamic analog of Tokyo's almost incomprehensible complexity. Here at DTA, we like this idea!
