  • It's Friday
    What day is it?
  • Now
    What time is it?
  • Anywhere in Auckland
    Where are you?
  • What do you feel like?
    What do you feel like?
  • And what else?
    And what else?

Russian media-artist, musician and engineer of strange-sounding mechanisms :vtol:, aka Dmitry Morozov, is known for creating DIY and circuit-bent instruments as well as audiovisual art-installations. Some of his previous works include a self-playing Russian folk bot, a sound controller that uses tattoos as a music score and a multichannel personal autonomous sound installation - that looks like an umbrella.

With an aim of raising awareness of environmental pollution, Morozov has given birth to the Digioxide, a device that sniffs out air pollution, gases and dust particles and turns it into tangible pieces of artwork.  The portable device, equipped with sensors is connected to a computer via bluetooth and turns information about the concentration of dust and harmful gases such as CO, CO2, HCHO, CH4 and C3H8 into generative graphics, forming an abstract image.

The device has a mobile printer that allows instant printing of the pollution data offering "a snapshot that can be left as an evidence on the place, or given as a present to a passerby."
