This is unbelievable. We all know that air pollution is sky-rocketing in the cities across the world. And Beijing is notorious for it.

While many citizens in Beijing stay indoors to escape from the harmful clouds of heavy pollution hanging over their city, this artist from China exposed himself 4 hours a day to the toxic air. Well, he was not fooling around; he was not even hoping that the air quality will improve somehow while he was roaming.

He was there to suck up the smog. And he has a good reason to do it.

He was sucking up the dust in the smog with a special vacuum cleaner.

“Nut Brother”, a 34-year-old artist from Shenzhen, wearing a respirator mask, sometimes in work jacket, has walked Beijing’s streets with his vacuum, with the suction nozzle held high in the air collecting dust.

Nut Brother collected the dust for 100 days

“Beijing’s air is bad all over. There is no special supply of air.”, Nut Brother says. Beijing’s Airpocalypse sparked outrage all over China and Nut Brother decided to this in 2013.

He posted his daily status on social media

Though Nut Brother’s work is getting a lot of attention in China, many wonder if the brick is really made of smog. He clarified that he mixed the dust and smog collected and mixed with clay to make the brick.

Nut Brother wants to give the brick to a construction company to use it in a construction project. A symbolic way of saying that the elements in the air people breath are no different than the bricks used in construction.

The air pollution had reached to dangerous levels and obstructing the vision.

Nut Brother vacuumed air from Beijing’s hutongs (old lanes) to the Tiananmen Square to the Bird’s Nest national stadium to the headquarters of the Ministry of Environmental Protection.

There’s plenty of pollution to make more bricks – Nut Brother
