The Windtunnel Project held host to an open air cinema event.  The film was the Aviator, which is all about Howard Hughes and his obsession with all things aeronautical, it couldn’t have been a more appropriate choice. It was a fantastic evening that I hope Artliner will repeat in the future.

On Saturday night, the R52 building was host to the London Contemporary Orchestra featuring Jonny Greenwood who is a member of Radiohead. It was a truly mesmeric experience, watching such consummate professional musicians perform. My musical tastes are more geared towards indie, but I still really appreciated watching these very talented players in such a fantastic space.

Apart from the awe of the massive propeller inside the wind tunnel, there are plenty of other visual treats within the interior of Q121. It is like entering a time capsule, where time has stood still. Machines and engines which once powered the propeller still look in good condition. You could imagine that with a bit of oil and R.A.E know how, it would be up and running in no time at all.

Q121 is a grade I listed building that contains a deactivated wind tunnel, it is  situated at Farnborough Airport and open to the public for the very first time. It is hard to comprehend the size of the propeller until you are actually standing near this structure.This wind tunnel could actually test the aerodynamics of full size aircraft.  Artliner are running a series of events based in and around this wind tunnel and I have been fortunate enough to be allowed to document the buildings and some of the events taking place.

I have been lucky enough to be involved with The Wind Tunnel Project at Farnborough Airport. It is a series of events arranged by Artliner, a company that arranges art exhibitions in unusual and unused spaces. These are a series of photographs from inside R52, a grade II listed building that contains a wind tunnel once used to test prototype aeroplanes. The second photograph shows Thor McIntyre-Burnie, a visual and sound artist, standing in what was once the control room. The last picture show’s one of the speakers situated inside the wind tunnel.
