Kodama is an urban pollution tracker. The project is named after spirits in Japanese folklore that inhabit trees. Kodama is a unique and innovative project that will revolution the way you consider pollution, as it measures in real time a city’s degree of pollution.
Kodama informs the population of the level of pollution thanks to a luminous device that changes colour according to the air quality. The tracker also heightens awareness with the help of a smartphone app that explains different aspects of what pollution is, and also tells you about the air quality in a precise geographic zone. Moreover, thanks to its appealing design, Kodama gathers the population together by creating a meeting place where people can exchange.
This project was designed alongside Chloé Assal and Paul-Arthur Thiéry. The latter being an engineer who helped us with the technical side of the project.
