Visible under ultraviolet light, Weather (Un)Control highlights often overlooked indoor air contaminants.

During Hurricane Sandy, ten percent of New York City buildings sustained storm damage. As the post-Sandy rebuilding continues, one installation is highlighting a hidden risk: indoor air pollution.

Weather (Un)Control was an installation on display by architecture firm MODU this past November that featured an indoor weather system as part of the Marfa Dialogues/NY. Using artificial dust and static electricity, Weather (Un)Control formed a “dust wall” that created drawings only visible under black light. The exhibit aimed to show how many health risks – including indoor air contaminants like mold and dust – go overlooked following extreme weather events.
