Urban Dispersion

Just like Christo's Gates except it won't attract as many tourists. And you need a special gas detector to see it. Oh, and it simulates a bio-terror attack. And I guess the artists do not really see the artistry in the project.
But the Urban Dispersion Program could be the name of a tres cool line of clothing.




NYC will play host to odorless invisible gasses racing through the urban canyons. For three weeks in August gasses will be released and tracked throught the city.
According to USA Today along with permanent sensors mounted on rooftops, a team of interns will be sent out to chase the invisible cloud. Of course, send the interns. Interns will do anything.




The test gasses are probably non-toxic but who really knows.

They should have made it magenta. That would've been cool.

If Manhattan votes Republican from now on we'll know they put something in it.

But seriously, the wind here in New York is quite different in the winter than in the summer. I hope they do more experiments and make plans that take into account seasonal factors. It's kind of obvious I guess but...
