I am to do a piece about Air. (pdf)
My collaborator is Virginia Viado, an urban planner for a private corporation in the San Bernardino region.
I will be working on a smog map.
I am layering silhouetted areas from various air emission maps that are created by various agencies that are responsible for the air we breathe.
In addition, there will be some mapping that notes other emission related data, like electric car outlets, ethanol and veggie gas stations and so on... I'll post it when it is done.
Here is some research I did:
“Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours” - Swedish Proverb
Allesandro Ricci - smog paintings

I should really quit smoking. I just don't feel like it right now.
breathe in, breathe out
