'Up in the Air' exhibition, until 24 July at The Glorious

'Up in the Air' is an exhibition of knitted larger-than-life versions of the greenhouse gases that are causing climate change. The exhibition aims to spark interest in the science and issue of climate change in a playful way. It is part of an ongoing project called Particulart: The art of knitting, chemistry, and gentle protest.

The exhibition is running from now until 24 July at the Glorious Art House on Exeter Fore Street. Buy a coffee and cake from the café on the ground floor, and wander up to the second floor gallery for knitted molecules floating in the Earth’s atmosphere, card games hidden in a comfy nook, and data about greenhouse gases. The whole gallery becomes a 3D graph complete with axis labels.

Diana Moore of Knit Stop will also be running a knitting workshop from 10am-12noon on Saturday 18 July. Come and knit your own carbon dioxide! There's something for everyone, in fact, including your inner or not-so-inner geek.

Will be holding a 'Back Down to Earth' private viewing at the end of the show, on Friday 24 July from 3.30pm-5pm. All welcome.

For more information, see particulart.org.uk/up-in-the-air/, and keep an eye out on https://www.facebook.com/events/395794737295149/.

And if anyone could take some photos for me with a proper camera and fish-eye lens, instead of my less-than-brilliant smartphone, I'd be eternally grateful.
