The Air We Breathe
Interactive Installation | Baltimore, MD| November, 2019 | 3:00m loop | single-channel video, twigs, electronics
We all breathe the same air. It is a constant, compulsory process, a collective interaction with the world around us. As our climate shifts, so too does this taking-in of the world. The Air We Breathe is a generative interactive projection that uses multiple scientific data sets, atmospheric carbon dioxide saturation (ppm), long-term global cumulative carbon dioxide emissions (tonnes), and global temperature anomalies to generate animation content. Viewers can interact with this data by blowing into pods, mixing the carbon dioxide of the present with that of history.
