Two remaining farming families still live at the end of the runway at Narita International Airport in Japan. This exhibition follows one family who have refused to move elsewhere despite pressure from the authorities since the planning and construction of the airport in the 1970s.
The installation is being created by Rupert Cox, from the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester, Angus Carlyle, a sound artist and Reader at the University of the Arts, London, in collaboration with Professor Kozo Hiramatsu, Japan's foremost acoustic scientist and UK president of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.
Air Pressure is supported by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award. In partnership with Asia Triennial Manchester 2011, initiated by Shisha, a festival of current contemporary visual art and craft from Asia.
