24 HRS AIR CLEANSER, Sampo-Rosenlew Factory Roof, Pori   ANA REWAKOWICS & ANNU WILENIUS
  Air Cleanser was installed on the roof
of the Rosenlew Factory in Pori on
December 15, 2008. It comprised of
a geodesic dome inflated by one of
the roof’s ventilators. The warm (and
yet toxic) air that the vent provided
created a suitable temperature for
placing chosen houseplants over the
period of 24 hours. Air Cleanser was
inspired by NASA research about air
purifying qualities of domestic plants
published by B.C. Wolverton in 1989.
According to this research our plants
were absorbing factory pollutants and
adding a small amount of “fresher” air
into the environment.
