In an effort to raise public awareness of environmental pollution, artist Dmitry Morozov has basically mashed up a polaroid camera with one of the Ghostbusters’ P.K.E. meters wearing a pair of Groucho Marx glasses to create a cunning device called the Digioxide, which makes digital prints from the pollutants it detects.
Digioxide is a portable wireless device equipped with sensors of air pollution gases and dust particles that is connected to computer via bluetooth. This allows a person with digioxide to freely move around a city, seek out ecologically problematic places and turn their data into digital artworks.
