Tonight, May 4 from 5-8 PM at Collar Works Gallery in Troy, come check out air quality monitoring rovers used in the data-collecting walk around the South End last week. The repurposed RC cars constructed by Maria Michails and crafted by the local kids of the after school Tinker Space program in partnership with AVillage… Inc. will be on display through Thursday, May 11.
In addition to the rovers, the gallery’s exhibition will include fixed media pieces, video and installation art, and live performances by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences graduate students from the MFA and PhD Electronic Arts program. The liver performances–from Diana Alvarez, Cem Cakmak, Eric Miller and Ezra Teboul– will begin at 6 PM.
If you are looking to learn more about how the rovers operate and collect data, there will be another air quality monitoring walk Saturday, May 6 from 1-3PM.
