“This chapter of my monograph, Uneven Geology: Notes from the Field of Contemporary Art, examines art about air pollution, including the asymmetrical nature of its production, distribution, and effects. More broadly, the book—at the intersection of contemporary art history, critical geography, environmental humanities, and Anthropocene studies—explores art and design practices that track environmental violence as it is writ into land, air, and water. It asks how aesthetic practices help make largely invisible processes more sensible and legible, even while they simultaneously underscore the uneven, contingent, and mutable nature of material evidence itself.”
