Serving the role of world factories, Taiwan and its neighboring Asian countries have also suffered from air pollution which poses imminent threat to environment and life as a consequence of industrial development. Airborne pollutants, dispersed across borders to different places through wind, have presented major hazards to contemporary life. However, although impacting life in a progressive and incremental way, air pollution is usually invisible and thus easily to be neglected. The project is to reveal air quality of the micro-environment that we are situated in as a real-time reminder through the wearable air pollution sensor.
With the improvement of technological accessibility, the general public can possess larger power to acquire information corresponding to different time and space as well as environmental quality data in their surroundings in order to perceive the most relevant “microclimate” condition.
The performance aims to invite people to participate in this project and to wear the sensor device with their daily outfit so as to form a human-machine interface which can remind the users of air quality in the surroundings.
