The inflatable sculpture THE LUNGS is used as a tool for protests against climate change. It breathes and can be carried in processions and demonstrations, e.g. in the context of the Cough4Coal campaign, symbolising both the human and the planet’s lungs. THE LUNGS lay emphasis on factors such as air pollution that threaten the body’s health and grant a greater visibility to climate change protesters. >> >>
