This piece is exhibited at AHO WORKS as part of a course in my master degree.
YEARLY BREATHE in an exhibition piece calculating how much particulate matter you breathe when exposed to the real time values of PM2.5 in the streets of Beijing, London and Oslo.
PM2.5 stands for particular matter with a diameter 100 times thinner than human hair. The dust triggers and aggravates diseases, primarily related to the respiratory and cardiovascular system.
Every 15 minute a specific amount is dispensed from each city. At the end of the day a pile of dust will show your yearly breathe of dust regarding to your location.
