What if we could hear air pollution?
From our very first breath of life, we make meaning of the world around us through sight, smell, touch, taste, and sound. However, there is a rich and complex world that exists beyond the veil of our perception. Cells die and regenerate, radio waves carry data all around us, gravity holds our feet to the ground.
The world of the invisible is both a delightful and dangerous place. The air we breathe is rich with oxygen, the keeper of life, but also toxins, the harbinger of death. With each breath in and out, 20,000 times a day, air becomes one with us.
The air we breathe is unwell, and it’s making us unwell. Yet, it is largely unnoticed. If you can't see it, smell it, taste it, hear it, or touch it, does it really exist?
What if we could understand with air pollution with our sense of sound?
