Media artist and creative technologist Kasia Molga created air quality responsive illuminating costumes that track exposure to air pollution through cities. Localised fluctuations in air quality will be represented via animated illuminations powered by the exhaled breath of a performer. Humans Sensor looks at vulnerable position of human body exposed to increasing pollutions and pollens in the air as a result of mass urbanization, climate change and decreasing biodiversity. During the week of Manchester Science in the City Festival 22-29 July and to coincide with The European Science open Forum in Manchester – Eight performers will wear the sensor costumes and commute into central Manchester via different travel routes.
