Art meets science for this eye-opening, immersive Treasury Gardens installation, which is shining the spotlight on just how pollution is impacting different corners of the globe. Created by British artist Michael Pinsky, the series of five interconnected Pollution Pods will transport you to Norway's Tautra, London, New Delhi, Beijing and São Paulo, dishing up some confronting truths in the process.

Each translucent, dome-like pod features a unique cocktail of ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide, replicating the air quality and environmental factors of one of these cities. You'll kick things off enjoying the crisp clean air of Norway, while the other pods together share a much less cheery story.

Pollution Pods are open Thursday–Friday 7pm–midnight and Saturday 7pm–2am.
