Atmosphere – the sound and sight of CO2

Investigating how interfaces affect the relation between the public and the private the installation “Atmosphere – the sound of CO2” will, as part of COP15 activities in Copenhagen in December, monitor the quantity of CO2 in the air at three different locations in Copenhagen and transform these data into an audiovisual expression that varies in accordance to the measured quantity of CO2.

As such the installation presents itself as both an artwork and as an interface that in a subtle and peripheral way presents to the public information on non-sensuous aspects of the environment. Aspects that relate to private activities like e.g. car driving and heating of houses. From a research perspective the installation relates to interface design/ interface aesthetics, sonification – the auditory equivalence of data visualization, and to a broader philosophical discussion concerning representational vs. computational aspects of space perception.
