On 21 February 2005 at Melbourne Airport, 57 people were affected by a mysterious illness and hospitalised. Early reports attributed the illness to the distribution of an unknown gas via the airport terminal’s air-conditioning system. It was initially feared this may have been a terrorist attack by unknown hostile international agents. However, evidence of such a gas was never found.

This is A Mysterious Illness: a multimedia installation utilising archival materials, and a reconstruction of the day 57 Melbourne Airport visitors were hospitalised, cause unknown.

It is unlikely we will ever know what caused the outbreak of A Mysterious Illness; however, in reconstructing these events, this work aims to discover what remains to be known about them.
