Photos – “Up in the Air” set-up

Clare managed to get in to the Glorious a couple of days early, so has already set up. Difficult to take photos of the whole room with only a smartphone – need a proper camera with a fish-eye lens! But hopefully these give a flavour of the transformation of the gallery into the Earth’s atmosphere and a 3-dimensional graph via the medium of knitting and chemistry!

The Earth surrounded by knitted representations of greenhouse gases.

A peek into the games niche, and from left to right: nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, methane.

Comfy cushions and 3 or 4 games for you to play!

A view of some of the info posters, and from left to right: HFC-134a, CFC-11, HFC-23, sulphur hexafluoride.

The knitted greenhouse gases were hung in the 3D space according to 3 pieces of data. Here are the x,y,z axes.

The as-yet empty comments book. Come and have a look!

'Water' is the theme of the Carbon Fast which the Church of England in the South West ran during Lent 2015 - see ecochurchsouthwest.org.uk for more

Water vapour is a potent greenhouse gas

The greenhouse gases were flanked by photographs by Chris Dobson on the theme of 'Water'

Photos – Inside the Incinerator

Diana was invited to the inauguration of the Incinerator on the morning of 16th October. She took a bunch of cutie PM2.5 particles with her, and they were a big hit with Viridor staff! Thanks to @michaelrigby2 from Cobalt Energy for providing his photos.

All togged up, ready for the tour around the incinerator. It was very instructive, and everyone should go to see how our waste is treated.

Speeches were spoken, a plaque unveiled, and there was lots of enthusiastic chatter about the inauguration.

What you chuck in your black bin is collected by the lorries, chucked in this big pit, mashed up and shredded a bit.

CCTV shows the big grabber which picks up waste and puts into the kiln. The operator sits on a big Star Trek seat overlooking the pit.

The control room monitors the ins and outs of waste-bearing lorries, and emissions.

Waste is loaded into oscillating kiln and burnt, I think at 8,000 degrees.

Most of the toxic particles are collected in lime bags (a bit too messy to show).

This is the stack, with the red lights on top, shooting emissions into the atmosphere. The Environment Agency regulates these.

This is the air cooled condenser. Steam that has been through the turbine is cooled back to water ready to go back through the cycle.

Lorries come to take the toxic fly and bottom ash away.

The particles 'emitted' at the exhibition launch were also a big hit with Viridor staff. Diana needs to make more!

Photos – Photographs by Ben Borley

We commissioned Benjamin J Borley to take some photographs of the Incinerator to include in the exhibition. Here are the results, including two that we had to exclude for lack of space.

Photos – Particulart launch

We had our exhibition launch on the evening of Wednesday 15th October, just before the inauguration of the Incinerator on the morning of the 16th.

Diana spoke about the politics of the Incinerator...

...Clare talked a bit about the exhibition...

...and a bit more...

...then Michael Rigby from Cobalt Energy, a sub-contractor working on the build, gave an impromptu introduction to the engineering.

Photos – Particulart hanging

Hanging the particles and Ben’s photographs in the Real Food café took over 5 hours. We were exhausted, but very pleased with how it turned out. Big thanks to Naomi Hart for her advice in the planning stage and help with the hanging.

Photos – Incinerator construction

Diana often took a photo of progress on the Incinerator when she cycled past.
