1. This is such a cool concept! Having a physical representation of our air quality and something to show our progress as we change it is an awesome way to get people on board to make a cleaner city.

  2. Nice find, Karlyn. We’ve posted some stuff in the past on data visualization design and art projects, it’s a really powerful way to “make the invisible visible“… there’s something about the idea of being able to act on information better once it’s presented to us in a novel way. Air quality statistics on paper = alarming, but difficult to incite a response towards understanding; air quality statistics through light-up balloons = curious and inviting for further exploration and analysis. Conversation starters can start change, I think.
