Abstract

The article examines the immersive art installations of Luftwerk and their role in activating historic spaces. The installations are informed by the architecture and history of the places in which they are sited. The art exists in conversation with both the buildings’ architects and the spaces themselves—including the Robie House, Fallingwater, the Ford House, the Farnsworth House, and the Garfield Park Conservatory. Luftwerk also seeks to establish connection with their audiences to ensure that their installations not only reflect the past but maintain contemporary relevance. Art intervention is explained as a force that can drive preservation by giving historic sites new dynamic and compelling dimensions.
