Pollution Pods

Pollution Pods by Michael Pinsky - UK Tour, Summer 2019


We were approached by the team of Cape farewell to help re-install the refrigerated unit in order to create the contrasting climates. The unit required installing and electrically connecting along with the addition of refrigerant in order for the exhibition to work.


A carefully mixed recipe emulates the relative presence of ozone, particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide which pollute these cities. Starting from the hosting city, the visitor will pass through increasingly polluted cells, from dry and cold locations to hot and humid.


Six geodesic domes are connected to form a ring. Within each dome the air quality of six global cities is recreated. A carefully mixed recipe emulates the relative presence of ozone, particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide which pollute these cities. Starting from the hosting city, the visitor will pass through increasingly polluted cells, from dry and cold locations to hot and humid.


Once the exhibition had come to an end we also needed to correctly diss connect the equipment and remove the refrigerant correctly to make the unit safe for the next HVAC engineer to install on the exhibitions next adventure.





Our team thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of this thought provoking exhibition which visually and physically demonstrates the different air qualities around the globe.
