Heads of lettuce are cultivated under eight airtight Plexiglas domes that allow for controlled circulation of the air within them. The domes are connected to the Internet, which provides access to real-time data on current air pollutionlevels in the capitals of the G7 countries and Austria. These data are used to concoct the same concentrations of pollutants in the atmospheres of the individual domes as are currently contaminating the air in the respective capitalcities.
