Open Environmental Kit at MUSAC. León. Spain

until 2019.05.26 // Exhibitions

26.01.2019-26.05.2019
MUSAC. León. Spain

Open Environmental Kit is a project from the field of Citizen Science. Its main goal is to contribute to a critical use of technology. It is an ongoing open-code and collaborative work that offers citizens the knowledge and resources required to create wearable environmental kits to measure air quality, humidity, atmospheric pressure, temperature, or dust in suspension, among other variables.

The information about the process, materials and code needed to replicate these kits will be available online. Open software platforms and low-cost DIY tools will be used to create the devices. As such, people will be given direct access to environmental information. Besides, an online platform will be developed for the project in which, if they wish, people will be able to publicise the environmental data recorded in the city of Leon with each kit.

Statement

Our work as art group brings together a collection of works and projects in which we study the interrelations and intersections that occur between machines and the human being.

We approach these issues in different kind of pieces: Interactive installations, sound interventions, multimedia pieces, etc. However, the support is not more than one channel that canalize the project itself.

A transversal and interdisciplinary research where the machine, far from a cold body, acts as an integrating factor, multiplying human capacities for equal us to other living beings or mechanical things already equipped with them.
