Human sensor by Kasia Molga 

Human sensors were wearable costumes which reacted, changed colour due to the air pollution levels. They performed with dancers in the city street of Manchester to bring awareness of the air we are breathing. This project was presented on July 2016.The final project lead to ” A protract of the Breath “. The collaborated dancers by Kasia Molga. They are currently in discussion about verses of the piece both national and internationally. The people watching the show, the costumes were powerful with calming conduits as the performer breathing the LED strip glows and responds to the task. the colours emitting was the air quality of the surrounding and how much the pollutants are exposed to air pollution. The respond to the project was clearly visible that we as humans were shucked shock to know that the air we breath has pollution and dangerous effects to our environmental solution is to take step forward of the discussion on air pollution.

The session helped me progress in MA  project, while it was the beginning of the semester. I wast clear of my thought on the project. I had so many ideas which were difficult to decide what was right for me and what interest me the end of the day. Bianca Manu and our fellow mates had a discussion on what exactly and how are the methods to be taught at university a small debt that moved to further questions like who are you doing this Ma for? why are you doing this Ma? and finally what are you doing this Ma for? initially, it was difficult for me to answer those questions but I knew that was the right point to answer and it was important to do so.It was an answer to self. Later she explained about issues about climate change and how it’s effecting the environment. (WHO)World Health Organization has said about 8% of air pollution increases globally from past 5 years. This rapid increase is slowly showing millions of people exposed to dangerous air pollution. Outdoor air pollution is world biggest treats. They are about 3 million deaths in a year. By seeing this problem we can bring this to global health emergency which everyone should be aware.

The air quality test, basically its a medium by the government to communicate with the public about the air pollution currently or how it can forecast in the future.

My Ma project was talking more abut light pollution like in the other hand how air pollution is dangerous to health, Light pollution researching more on why are we using artificial light and what are the effects on human what are the future results of the movement? An article says, in years everyone would have experienced the darkest night and a clear sight of stars. Now, millions of children or people will never come across a milky way due to the pollution causing around us. The increase of artificial light is not only distracting the view of the sky but also affecting our health, our environment, and our energy. Light pollution is a health hazard to every living thing on this earth. Light at night can also disrupt the growth of the plant. Exposes to night light disrupts the circadian rhythms which disrupt our sleep cycles.A study says that night shift people face bright light and face cancer and many other health problems. Even study for scientist and astronauts is getting harder these days. they need clear dark skies to study the objects in the universe. because of these, we need to realize that we are wasting money and fossil fuels.

While I say lighting is needed, but they are simple things we can do, energy efficient helps to presence the ambiance of the dark skies. In my MA program,I am investigating more on effects of artificial light and lack of natural light. Down below are the two different images how skies are without artificial light and how is it different with the light. In the year 1923, Havelock Ellis in the dance of life said that when anything that reaches the human hands…The sun, the moon, and the stars would have disappeared long ago.
