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 Harmonorium

Philippe Rahm, Jean-Gilles Décosterd

Venice Biennale


An architectural installation designed to mimic the alpine environment. Modifications in light, temperature, air composition and pressure directly induce metabolic change altering both physical and mental performance.


Brilliant white light radiates from the floor. The structure of our eyelids, lashes and the standard angle at which we place our heads do not block light from below. We must therefore absorb this light in unusual quantities affecting our metabolisms as a reaction. In this space we are taking in information through the eyes which will change the levels of hormones in our blood and affect our moods yet this is not an act of seeing.
