Atypical Gallery, in conjunction with Belfast Photo Festival 2018, present an exhibition of experimental photography by digital artist Robin Price.

The works in this exhibition make visible the outcomes of a collaboration between digital artist Robin Price and environmental scientist Francis Pope. Experimental photography – recorded using a custom-built digital light painter and wearable sensors captures the extent of air pollution present by enlarging microscopic particulates which are usually invisible to the naked eye. Images which indicate a greater density depict higher numbers of hazardous particulates. These images were made in sites around the UK and Ireland, as well as those which are most vulnerable to the health effects of pollution including India, Mexico and East Africa.
