Dr Magz Hall, Senior Lecturer in Radio, has been working on an installation, “Skyport”, for the exhibition Air Matters: Learning from Heathrow at Watermans Arts Centre, Brentford, 8th October–31st Dec 2019. The exhibition and surrounding events will explore the politics of air at London Heathrow. For some, the air at Heathrow is a space of networks and travel. For others, it is what they must breathe.

Air Matters responds to these challenges, bringing together newly-commissioned artworks, workshops and a symposium.
