In partnership with Science Gallery Melbourne, White Night Reimagined presents British artist Michael Pinsky’s Pollution Pods.

Five large domes represent polluted environments of cities globally. Start your journey in Tautra in Norway, breathing in clean smelling air and then continuing through to the cities of London, New Delhi, Beijing and São Paulo which between them suffer from some of the lowest air quality in the world.

Each pod replicates these polluted environments which contain varying levels of ozone, particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide.

This work is presented as part of Science Gallery Melbourne’s 2019 program, DISPOSABLE, a month of pop-up art/science installations. DISPOSABLE takes you on a dumpster dive to find creative solutions to our throwaway culture.

This project is supported by EPA Victoria.


Accessibility note: There are hanging plastic strips at the entrance to the installation and in the doorways between each pod.
