A LIVING POLLUTION INDICATOR
The City Lung is a « living » object that represents the air quality data in different cities around the world. The better the air quality is, the easier the object is « breathing » and vice versa.
Our principal idea was to represent a data stream with a biomimetic approach. We wanted the object to be « alive ». After a big brainstorming, our inspiration came to a lung which will breath depending on the amount of pollution in different cities around the world.
We designed the global shape of the object. A 3d model was made and we used a laser cut machine to create the wooden framework of the lung.
We used a lycra material for the husk. The projection on this cloth of the map of differents cities look like a radiography.
