The artist is wearing the Air Quality interactive dress under the Bruckner Expressway (Interstate 278 and I-95), an elevated highway dividing Mott Haven from Port Morris and where the hospitalization rate for asthma is 57 times more than in the best Manhattan area. Children are the most affected by bad air quality as they breathe faster than adults.
