PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
Heat Exchange is an exhibition of enamel works curated by Elizabeth Turrell (UK), Beate Gegenwart (Germany/UK) and Melissa Cameron (Australia).
Heat, in physics, is defined as an exchange of energy. In thermodynamics, a heat exchanger is a system built to effect efficient heat transfer. In most heat exchange systems the exchange is mediated so that the hot and cold media do not come into contact. Typically it is only their energy that is exchanged.
This exhibition replicates this exchange. The participating artists, located in North America, Australia, Germany and the United Kingdom have interfaced over the past nine months via the internet, at the Heat Exchange blog. The exhibition will now display the works that were created during these exchanges.
