“CleanSmog” is a combustion powered air purifier that simultaneously causes and removes its own pollution. The project intends to cancel out pollution by creating power through dirty / gasoline driven fuel that when burned powers a generator that creates electricity to run an air purifier which in turn, extracts the same pollution from the surrounding air. The project is a comment on how anti-pollution methods often fail because the technology used to bring them to market causes more pollution than their intended goal.
Clean Smog – is the third project in my series of works related to Environmental Inversion.
