Blue Sky Day is a portrait of industrialization captured through 34 monthly grids from 2010-2015. Each month is laid out in a calendar grid structure in consecutive order by day, creating accidents of color patterns. The color palette of Beijing’s sky is documented outside in correlation with regional air quality readings gathered from the Ministry of Environmental Protection of the People’s Republic of China. "Blue Sky Days" have an AQI (Air Quality Index) of 100 or less. And daily AQI readings are calculated from several sets of air pollution data.
