Urban Air. LA. Stephen Glassman.
Urban air is the latest project from the LA-based artist Stephen Glassman. The plan is to install living bamboo plants, alongside environment sensors, on existing billboards suspended above the freeway. “My intention is to put a crack in the urban skyline, so that when people are compressed, squeezed, stuck in traffic, and they look up and they see an open space of fresh air that allows them to take a breath and feel themselves as humans and see what life might be.” The locations will also be WiFi enabled to allow people to check the air quality in the area using the sensors. They’re currently seeking funding through Kickstarter to launch their flagship project – participate in the idea: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1045021696/urban-air-los-angeles
