Air Quality

Painting with live air pollution data from around the world

creative coding, data, web design

A experimental drawing tool that uses real-time AQI (Air Quality Index) data from around the world. Rather than letting users choose the size and colour of their brush, they instead choose one of the listed cities, and the air quality in that city at that moment determines the brush’s qualities. Cleaner air results in a small pale brush, more polluted air results in a broad dark cloud.
