Anatomy of the Human Breath
“The Anatomy of Human Breath” looks at the chemical composition
of exhaled breath as a response to the air quality. The presence of Nitric Oxide, Oxygen, Carbon Oxide
and Hydrogen in various proportions create patterns. Together with Human Sensor
and A Portrait of Your Breath
"The Anatomy of Human Breath" is a part of "Breathing Series". It has been produced as a result of
ICT ART award - initially as a research towards the "The Human Sensor", but it became its own design work.
The art installation invite viewers to examine their own breath by blowing into the tube.
The data is then analysed by eNO (exhaled Nitric Oxide) and H20 sensors and interpeted with the help of algorithm,
in a form of generative design visualisation.
"The Anatomy of Human Breath" was exhibited at FoAM in Brussels, Belgium and it has been
presented to EU Parliament Commission.
In 2019, just before the pandemic, it has been recommissioned by the Mayor of London office for Mayor of London International Air Quality Conference.
