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.



The urge to find correspondence between the eye and the ear, between colour and sound, music and visual movement has produced countess collaborations across various disciplines. Ballets, films, multi media performances not to mention a host of theoretical proposals linking apparently unrelated systems, often, it must be said, dubiously. This video shows the thinking behind a recent collaboration between media artist Joachim Sauter and composer Ólafur Arnalds. The works of each are undeniably sympathetic and there is a real sense that they reinforce one another. That they have been developed in tandem rather than been married off after the fact gives the collaboration a real richness which one can imagine might result in changes to the thinking of each individual artist toward their own practice.
