Our ClairCity Skylines game is hitting the news and generating local interest across the city. Last week, Thangam Debbonaire MP (Bristol West) got to enjoy the game as part of the “Creative Reactions” exhibition in Hamilton House, Bristol.
Thangam has been raising issues of air quality in her constituency, and was keen to see new ways to get more people to engage with the issue and understand the challenges – and opportunities – that tackling air pollution can bring.
Within the exhibition there is also a piece inspired by the ClairCity project, made by local artist Laura Howarth. We talked to Laura about the health impacts of air pollution, especially on hearts and lungs. Her final pieces for the exhibition were references to the damage done to lung tissue from diesel emissions. All of the work in the exhibition is inspired by cutting edge research taking place in Bristol, interpreted through the work of over 30 local artists. Creative Reactions is on show until 22nd May 2018 as part of the Pint of Science festival.
