[ Air Pollution Becomes Art ]

carpollution 591x218I never knew this could be a Thing, but it’s definitely a #1Thing. Thanks to friends from the MIT Media Lab in Boston, Anirudh Sharma and Nikhil Kaushik invented Air-Ink, a professional art supply made directly from car exhaust and soot.

  • cars release about 20% of the world’s carbon dioxcide
  • people breathe in an average of 2 gallons of polluted air a minute

Sharma, Kaushik, and the rest of their team at Graviky Labs have cleaned 1.6 trillion liters of air since officially capturing pollution last June. This is impressive and what they do w/ the exhaust and soot turn it into a work of art literally. Environmental Art... “The more Air-Ink we use, the less pollution we breathe—simple,”  Click here to see some of the Amazing art and how it’s done! #1Thing that is helping Mama Earth and getting lots cool points too!
