Conversations Los Angeles Leiden: Nature and the City is an exhibition that offers visitors a new perspective on objects and specimens that may be familiar to them through other, more traditional display contexts. The exhibit highlights the collections of Naturalis, the national natural history museum of The Netherlands, located in the city of Leiden. Created in collaboration with the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
