A new Parfyme project:
From June to October 2008, The Harbor Laboratory will promote, initiate and evaluate new ideas for the harbor in Copenhagen, as practical, functional and visual explorations. It will act quickly – building and testing our inventions and creations right away.
As they see it:
" ... the harbor has a great potential to be a cultural and inspirational area for the residents of Copenhagen. We will do our best to facilitate and realize this goal using the Harbor Laboratory as a platform/catalyst for innovative change".
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.
