About:

From 29 June - 1 July 2019, Cape Farewell brings the Pollution Pods to Portland. This unique, interactive installation will take you on a fascinating journey through the pollution and air quality of cities across the world.

At Stadium Bowl, 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 and commissioned to test whether art can really change people’s perceptions of, and actions around, climate change. This event is hosted in association with b-Side.

Presented by Cape Farewell in partnership with b-Side. The Pollution Pods are free to attend.
