"The Festival of Regions presents exclusively projects produced especially for the festival and orients itself internationally toward a contemporary concept of culture which comprises art, social research and social practices as well as links with everyday culture and interdisciplinary co-operation.
The 2007 Festival of Regions is being presented as an oversized exhibition in the public space of the focal region situated along the Pyhrn expressway in Austria. From Schlierbach Monastery to the Main Square in Windischgarsten, projects are to be found in vacated shopping centres, service stations and parking areas as well as on fields, lakes and mountain faces.
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.
