Michael Pinsky’s interactive and eye-opening artwork, enables audiences to experience differing air qualities amongst the world’s least and most polluted cities.
How clean is our air?
Experience some of the most polluted cities in the world from the safety of these glorious and sustainably made pods.
Your journey starts in a pod recreating the pristine environment of Tautra, a remote Norwegian island. Enjoy breathing in that clean-smelling air, and steel yourself to continue through to the pods with some of the lowest air quality in the world: London, New Delhi, Beijing and São Paulo.
Each pod safely *simulates* the polluted environments of these cities rather than exposing you to the serious levels of ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide that their occupants breathe in every day.
Are you ready to take a whiff of the smog of London or Beijing? And how does Melbourne compare?Visit the EPA (Environment Protection Authority) AirWatch to find out more.
Presented in partnership with White Night Melbourne and the EPA.
