The two disciplines of art and science have long been identified as separate research fields, often presumed as adopting strikingly different working practices. It can be
considered, however, that notions of process, experimentation, attention to detail, rigour, and curiosity are all commonly shared components. The sharing of ideas and methodologies between artists and scientists have allowed for significant insights, innovation, and research engagement. Air pollution is an invisible killer, with much of the world’s population breathing polluted air every day without being able to
see it. The visualisation of air pollution is therefore of great importance for public understanding and motivation to improve air quality policies. To better understand
the vitality and agency of air pollution, this paper uncovers artistic methods such as the use of the concept of attunement, and the ability to convey embodied experiences of dirty air. Additionally, we consider how effective art and science hybrids are for engaging and affecting audiences.
