Project reads local C02 levels and displays them through chalk formations

“Statlab” by Dutch artist Tjerk Stoop, is an environmental art project that samples local air quality and displays the average CO2 levels through a chemical reaction where chalk particles are dynamically formed. The result is a graph “where the difference in the amount of chalk particles per tank is a global measure for the fluctuating CO2 concentration within one week.” Interesting visualization of pollution information with a nice visual aesthetic that renders typical scientific data more palatable to the average citizen. Check out the link below for lots more info on this installation.
