Last night I watched a documentary on 'Mass Moving', ... "an artistic movement born in the wake of may 68. Composed of artists and engineers, the group is defined by its ephemeral projects and actions. When the Mass Movers realize that their ideal is not the same, they shut down with a spectactular auto-da-fé. Through Mass Moving, we see not only the story of an era, but also the beginnings of the ecological and alternative energy movements. An artistic movement that is as topical today as it ever was."
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.
