16ft lung installation unveiled to make air pollution visible

E.ON has unveiled a 16ft installation which visually represents the issue of air pollution, after 88% of people admitted they are confused about air pollution and 89% would do more to tackle it if they knew how. With 63% of people saying they don’t know enough about air pollution and the same percentage admitting they put air pollution to the back of their mind because it’s invisible, ‘LUNGS’ has been created to make the invisible visible and demonstrate current levels of air pollution affecting us all. Erected on the banks of the River Thames, LUNGS fills up with different coloured smoke to represent Nitrogen Dioxide, Sulphur Dioxide and PM 2.5 – three major pollutants which we breathe in daily.
