Jaemin’s Final Project

From smog hanging over cities to smoke from wildfire, air pollution poses a major threat to our health. Visibility is easily impacted by air pollution. As we have more and more bad air days, we get more of blurry, hazy vision.

Using Visibility as an Indicator for Air Quality

We always use colors to indicate the air quality. In this concept, I added one more visual element—the visibility.

It has 4 layers of mountains which are made of acrylic sheets and 5 row of LED strips which light up the mountains and the wall behind it.

Not just color of the LED but also the number of lit LED strips constantly change, depending on the air quality. For instance, when the air quality is terrible, only the first row of LED turns on in red and all you can see is the silhouette of the first mountain.
