Particle Falls

When: Fri., March 4, 6:30-8:30 p.m. 2016

Particle Falls -a public art installation by artist/scientist Andrea Polli- is an animated light projection on the side of the UNCC Center City building revealing the invisible particle pollution in surrounding air. Appearing as a waterfall-like cascade of light, the animation is generated with a specialized software that visually translates in real time particulate matter readings from a nephelometer, a scientific instrument that gathers data about air pollution. When particulate pollution is present, bright bursts of color interrupt the steady flow of blue light. Presented by Clean Air Carolina and the College of Arts + Architecture
