Particulate Matters

Rebecca Chesney

Particulate Matters is an artistic research project, designed by Rebecca Chesney, to explore air quality in relation to daily routines and how it affects human health and the environment.

What would happen if we could suddenly see the air we breathe? How would we choose to travel, plan our cities and conduct our daily lives if pollution from traffic and industry was visible in our skies? How would we respond if we could see the effects of particulate matter on our hair, skin, lungs, heart and circulatory system? Would we choose to maintain the status quo or radically alter our habits?

Rebecca is currently undertaking initial research in Preston, with a view to developing a large scale project later in 2016.
