Chinese company Xiao Zhu has created a powerful pollution installation in order to raise awareness about the terrible effects factories have been having on the populations health. Focusing specifically on the youth of China, the pollution installation revolves around images of crying babies that are projected on billows of factory smoke. The results are incredibly heart-wrenching.

Through this pollution installation, it looks as though the smoke is what's making the babies cry so terribly -- which is of course the entire point. Dubbed Breathe Again, Xiao Zhu writes, "We decided to put a spotlight on air pollution’s biggest culprits — the factories — by using the actual pollution from the factories as a medium…. Clean the air, let the future breathe again." Although addressing China specifically, it's a message the rest of the world could benefit from.
