I worked as the core developer/technologist for the 'AirWeShare' interactive installation as part of the Climate and Cities collective. Commission by Hubbub, the piece was on public display for 2 weeks in Covent Garden, London. The piece used a system of balloons and spotlights to enable people to compare air quality in different parts of the city. More info. Press: BBC Radio LondonThe Evening Standard.
