Marcel Mazoyer and Laurence Roudart suggest that we need to
look back at the past since the birth of agriculture to fully apprehend the disastrous evolution of our farming techniques today.

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
