Air. As the planet warms, there's likely to be less of it — or, at any rate, less of the healthy, breathable, life-giving kind. This is just one of the issues that RMIT Gallery's latest exhibition, Dynamics of Air, takes into its hands. Comprised of works by 25 designers, artists and researchers, the show immerses you in climate change, explores the possibility of sharing air in over-crowded cities and delves into cutting-edge research.

Both Australian and international artists are involved. Look out for the four-metre-high Gradierwerk (​salt breathing tower) by Austria's Breathe Earth Collective, and prepare to be carried through constantly changing microclimates via Outside In, a piece by German climate engineer Thomas Auer and Wagenfeld.

Meanwhile, New York-based Natasha Johns-Messenger, has joined forces with Melbourne's Leslie Eastman to create a viewing room, where you'll experience optical illusions caused by a mechanism similar to an aeroplane propeller. To really get a literal experience of it all, Berlin's Edith Kollath will invite you to share air with fellow gallery-goers inside a glass vessel.

The gallery is open from 11am till 5pm Monday to Saturday, except for Thursday, when it's open until 7pm.
