The works in this exhibition make visible the outcomes of a collaboration between digital artist Robin Price and environmental scientist Francis Pope. Experimental photography – recorded using a custom-built digital light painter and wearable sensors – capture the extent of air pollution present by enlarging microscopic particulates which are usually invisible to the naked eye. Images which indicate a greater density depict higher numbers of hazardous particulates. These images were made in sites around the UK and Ireland, as well as those which are most vulnerable to the health effects of pollution including India, Mexico and East Africa.
The artist will give a free public talk at Atypical Gallery on Saturday 30th June at 5pm.
Fully wheelchair accessible. Hearing loop in gallery. BSL interpretation and Touch Tours on request.
