"The modern artist is one that gathers the term of his art between trash and rubbish. From amongst the waste of the opulent capitalist society, there in the trash objects lose their identity, their function and origin. They take the attributes that the new proprietor gives and approximates them by giving trash a new sense of a strange analogy. A small change of surprising expression."
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
