University of the Arts London Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation (TrAIN) is a forum for historical, theoretical and practice-based research in architecture, art, communication, craft and design. The MA, which is run by the Research Centre, will focus on questioning the nature of culture, tradition and authenticity with regard to relationships between the local and the global.
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.
