While the world will turn its attention to Paris in December 2015, for the 21st UN Conference on Climate Change, COP21, the Mona Bismarck American Center presents Particle Falls Andrea Polli, a reactive projection quality based on air pollution levels.

American environmental artist Andrea Polli’s Particle Falls, a real-time reactive light projection will be displayed on the façade of the Mona Bismarck American Center as part of ArtCop21, the official cultural program accompanying the 21st United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP21). A large-scale public installation visible every evening from 6 PM, Particle Falls acts as a monitor, an alarm, and a thing of beauty simultaneously, allowing the public to see current levels of air pollution as a digitally generated lightshow that changes and adapts in real time. The installation will be accompanied by a round table discussion on the intersection of art, environment and activism.

Andrea Polli is an American artist, associate professor of art and ecology at the University of New Mexico, who is interested in digital arts.
It describes the genesis of Particle Falls as follows: "The air is invisible. We can not see or touch, so we did not bring him much interest. But it is important to become more aware of what is happening with our air, and talking. " Particle Falls will be projected onto the facade of the Mona Bismarck American Center (34, avenue de New York, 75016 Paris) from November 16 to December 13, and will be visible every day from 18 hours.
