This two-part installation at 110 Milam St. and Blaffer Art Museum is in conjunction with the exhibition Buildering: Misbehaving the City. Abinadi Meza's Air, Condition is a sound and video installation constructed from the invisible but omnipresent transmissions swarming in Houston's atmosphere.

Composed of field recordings collected throughout the city, the sound captures the dynamic energy of signals and particles — both technological and ecological — that surround people and encompass the movement of business transactions, air pollution, traffic, street sounds and other palpable evidence of an industrialized port city. Paired with a video that looks toward the Houston sky, Air, Condition explores the uncontainable sources and receptors of this soundscape as political matter, for even the air is not neutral.

On view through Oct. 29.
