The Huntington Beach Art Center in California is currently holding an exhibition of three site responsive installations entitled “Land, Sea, Air” until September 6th.

One of the three exhibits is “Prana”- an inflatable dinosaur that measures and visualizes the quality of air in Huntington Beach. Every ten seconds, Prana collects new data from the cross-government agency website airnow.gov,  and changes color (utilizing an internal light) from green to red based upon the information it receives.
