In the nineteenth century, green spaces within urban environments were identified as the ‘lungs of the city’ due to their air purifying qualities. This architectural installation
showcases contemporary fabrication techniques using materials that reduce toxicity in the home and will contain a living environment of plants that possess the most effective air cleaning properties. Workshops will be running during VIEWPOINTS.

Using Air-InkTM created from recycled exhaust fumes this thought-provoking artwork will showcase pollution in its physical form, making a usually invisible environmental issue, quite literally, visible. Peter is working with Graviky Labs of India, who have pioneered this extraordinary process. The work will be performative in nature, developing over the course of the week - head to the gallery to watch this fascinating drawing technique.
And many more. For full details please visit Viewpoints on the Festival of Thrift website.
