19 Oct 2006 "Public Smog Amy Balkin
is part of an ongoing conceptual artwork by San Francisco-based artist, Amy Balkin. The project consists of a gesture in which the artist buys and withholds carbon gas emission credits from international trading markets in order to create a temporary clean-air park. Aiming to highlight the complexities and contradictions of current environmental protocols, Balkin will attempt to submit an application to qualify the entire atmosphere as a UNESCO World Heritage Site."

By sheer serendipity we ended up spending the evening last Saturday with Jean-Paul Felley and Olivier Kaeser who run –pay attention now...– Attitudes
Espace d'arts contemporains in Geneva, Switzerland. The next projects at the space (from 17 November) are by Tomás Saraceno and Dan Perjovschi. They present pages in Attitudes journal, called Latitudes, featuring artists working in residence around the world. Here is Lara Almárcegui's page
