E.g. We are surrounded by polluting agents and other factors that have a direct impact on our everyday lives, our mood and, ultimately, on our behaviour. Variations in noise, temperature, atmospheric pressure, ultraviolet radiation or amounts of carbon monoxide are some of the challenges we have to face on a daily basis. At the end of the day, they are agents that influence our temper and our behaviour with others.

E.g. ""Environment Dress 2.0"" consists of garments that collect information about the wearer’s immediate surroundings, visualize the data and make them available via an app. Sensors collect data on: Noise, temperature, air pressure, ultraviolet radiation, carbon monoxide level.

E.g. Making available sensor output in a creative visual manner alerts the wearer and the spectator to environmental variables in an engaging manner. Sharing data in this way, encouraging emotional engagement through visualisation and feedback, has significant implications around how wearable technology and smart city infrastructure can work with citizens to enhance urban life.

Case Study: Flone

By: 'Lot Amorós, Cristina Navarro and Alexandre Oliver’
ongoing work as aeracoop

Airspace is Public Space, we have the Right to Fly


BBC Video showing how to build your own Flone.

Description of Work

This artwork is positioned as

A platform that allows smartphones to fly: And not just smartphones. Flone is a platform for the empowerment of air space.

Flone is an innovative drone designed to carry a smartphone or similarly sized object (such as a small camera).

Artist Statement

The original team for Flone as part of the New Things New Starts exhibition were:

Lot Amorós: With no fixed place of residence, Amorós lives and works around the world. He is a Spanish computer engineer and transdisciplinary artist who works with data visualisation interfaces, mixed reality performances and interactive audiovisual instruments. He has created a number of installations for residencies and international digital art installations, including the projects EVA in Sao Paulo and Augmented Airspace in Cairo. In May 2012 he was an artist-in-residence in the Netherlands, with the project Guerrilla Drone, an air interface for the projection of images. Since then, his projects have focused on the power of air robotics through drones.

Cristina Navarro: Industrial Technical Engineer at the Polytechnic University of Alcoy and Technician specialising in car mechanics and electricity. She has won several prizes for different artistic and technical works around the automotive industry. She is very involved in political and social life, participating in different local organisations, including a feminist association that she founded with three other partners in 2011, and with which she encourages the participation of women in technology.

Alexandre Oliver: Oliver is an Industrial Engineer at Miguel Hernández University at Elx. At the age of 15, he started manufacturing modeling rockets and, later on, jet turbines, using the materials at his disposal and the information on the Internet. Later he got involved in the world of digital fabrication and develops several prototypes of CNC machines, always in a self-taught way. He is convinced that the future (and present) of engineering must involve digital manufacturing together with shared free knowledge and self-learning.
