Airs de Paris / Diurnisme / Philippe Rahm


Diurnisme is the last space exhibited by Philippe Rahm during the "Airs de Paris" exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris (25.04-15.08.07). It is a space that artificially and physiologically creates the conditions of night during the day. It is a sort of counterpart for the electric night illuminations we all know now for decades in our houses and cities and that have extended the day into the night and let us develope new social behaviors (like different types of day time activities at night, even the birds are confused now and sing at night in big cities!).
What kind of new functions and social behaviors might produce such "night at day"spatiality?

Additional explanations about Airs de paris and Diurnisme in this short ARTE video.
