          Tailpipe Exhaust Pollution (credit: file photo)

PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) used the art of animation to tell an air pollution story. Vehicle exhaust is a driver of air pollution, smog, and diseases like asthma. The tools of animation can take complex ideas and scientific results, using design elements with 'voice over', to illustrate a story. Issues that can hard to follow listening to a 'talking head' are easily interpreted in an animation. The PNAS film is clear about pollution sources and the benefits offered by alternatives.


The complete research article is available online: PNAS-air-quality-impacts-article.pdf but the animation isn't available in the print version. Scientists and engineers are increasingly collaborating with animators to help communicate their important and often super-interesting stories.
