Pollution Pods by Michael Pinsky - UK Tour, Summer 2019
An immersive installation by artist Michael Pinsky made up of five geodesic domes, emulating polluted environments in cities globally
Manchester: 18 – 23 June
Portland: 29 June – 1 July
Over 10,000 visitors worldwide have experienced Michael Pinsky’s immersive artwork, Pollution Pods. They now return to the UK for a strictly limited UK tour.
This unique, interactive installation will take you on a fascinating journey through the pollution and air quality of cities across the world. Step inside a series of climatically controlled pods and compare five contrasting global environments where the air quality, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide levels of five cities is recreated. Starting with the truly clean air of Tautra in Norway, you will continue through the astonishing smog and pollution of London, New Dehli, Beijing and Sao Paolo.
The Pollution Pods were created by artist Michael Pinsky to test whether art can really change people’s perceptions of, and actions around, climate change.
