Dustmarks And Ozone Tattoos: Autographic Displays Of Air Pollution by Northeastern University

Autographic visualizations are based on material evidence rather than digital data. They aim to make the material conditions of data collection experiential and accountable. Staubmarke and Ozone Tattoo are two autographic vis projects that make environmental pollution legible. The first project uses reverse graffiti to reveal the patina of particulate matter covering the city. The second “tattoos" plants with ozone to turn them into legible bio-indicators for ground-level ozone pollution.
