“Operating on the frontier between art and architecture, Graham Stevens builds inflatable forms and environments that create a dialog between poetry and hyper-technology. Engaged in a critical approach to architecture and opposed to its “rootedness,” Stevens advocates an art of air and movement. […] Utilizing an optikinetic and multi-sensorial approach, Graham Stevens assembled, developed and filmed his installations in 1971 under the title of Atmosfields. Installed in the heart of London, in the slips of St Katherine’s Docks, these floating, flying and moving works became icons of urban performance in a Pop and critical re-appropriation of the city.” (Lucy Hofbauer via FRAC Centre)
