As we move through the city, mobile devices allow us to enjoy remote networking and immersion in personal entertainment. These preoccupations, however, lessen our sensitivity to what is happening directly around us, and often we learn about our own environmental conditions through mediated sources.
What if mobile technology could reconnect us to our surroundings by observing environmental data directly, data that had been obscured to us before?

With my thesis I hope to enable people for playful grass-roots monitoring, where the presence of contaminants in a community can be known and charted by anyone. These explorations would encourage a more conscious individual behaviour, spreading cumulatively to neighbouring communities.
