The Romantic Observer

interactive object


The Romantic Observer is a dust measurement device. It lives a self-sufficient and night-active life, awakening at sunset, when the red colouration of the sky becomes visible. The sensor head is directed toward the evening sky analyzing the refraction of light on the basis of countless particles (aerosols) in the air. The device evaluates the romantic setting by visualizing the current dust concentration in the sky graphically and thereby giving us a constant feedback on the pollution of air that affects our environment.

The object was exhibit on the REFUGIUM, DMY 2013 in Berlin.
