Air-Bound is a multi-disciplinary project that seamlessly integrates data visualisation, speculative world building, and embodied practices to create immersive experiences. With a focus on the intricate relationship between air pollution, the environment, and human well-being, it invites participants to delve into the complexities of a fluid world dictated by air pollution. 

Using weekly data of PM2.5 and NO2 air pollution levels across London, UK, Air-Bound explores the concept of shifting borders. The raw data serves as the driving force behind the dynamics of an abstract map, where the size of each borough expands and contracts, reflecting the levels of these pollutants. This approach allows participants to visually witness the direct impact of air pollution on the evolving cityscape.

Through a series of breath focused workshops and thought-provoking newspaper articles, Air-Bound actively involves participants in understanding and reflecting upon their personal connection to air pollution. It encourages contemplation of the broader societal implications that arise from living in a world where everyday actions are shaped by immediate air quality.

By challenging preconceptions and stimulating conversations, Air-Bound prompts participants to reimagine the future of our cities and confront the critical issue of air quality. With its artistic lens, this project not only raises awareness but also inspires a collective drive towards a cleaner and healthier environment.

Through Breathe Less workshops, participants are invited to explore the project's themes through a transformative breathwork flow. By incorporating breath-work, the project deepens the exploration of the impact of air pollution on personal and collective health. Participants are encouraged to reflect on the significance of clean air for their own well-being while also considering the broader societal implications of this fluid world. The workshops provide a space for self-reflection, connection, and empowerment, fostering a sense of responsibility and agency in addressing the challenges posed by air pollution.
