Discover this thought-provoking Mixed Reality Sculpture by Studio Above&Beyond that visualizes air quality.
Digital Atmosphere is a Mixed Reality sculpture from digital artist duo Daria Jelonek and Perry-James Sugden, known as Studio Above&Below. The piece looks at how technology and art can illuminate the quality of our air, usually invisible to the naked eye. The sculpture’s sensor will pick up the invisible change of air quality of the immediate environment, translated into an evocative augmented reality simulation to encourage the visitor to visualise a sustainable, zero-carbon emissions future for our cities and shared environments. At a time when the safety of our air is at the front and centre of our public consciousness, this digital installation is a timely technological and artistic endeavour. Digital Atmosphere has been commissioned as part of V&A Digital Design Weekend.
