Within the framework of A/D/A festival, an urban artist research and mediation project in Hamburg, Jessica Broscheit posed the question „How will we breathe tomorrow?“. The aim of this design-orientated approach was to address environmental concerns with citizens and empower them in understanding digital technology concepts. For this endeavour, participants were introduced to the subject of air quality and took part in the process of creating a personal data-based future artifact with sensor technology. In the spirit of Antony Dunne and Fiona Raby, these functional artifacts were used as tools to better comprehend the present and discuss a desirable future. The A/D/A festival
was held on August 25 – 28, 2016 and joined the thematic focus „Art and Digital Activism“ of the International Summer Festival on Kampnagel.
