Participants: Hanna Husberg, Artist in residence with The Seed Box, Linköping University,; Agáta Marzecová, Tallinn University, Estonia,

The project engages with the altered air, that emanates from energy intensive activities concentrated in/around cities, impacting environments and inhabitants unevenly and disproportionately within/beyond their boundaries. It addresses the questions of air’s governability, and the role of imaginaries in navigating the invisibility of scientific infrastructures and governance by numbers. Building upon fieldwork in Beijing it produces bidirectional exchanges between sciences and arts.
