How can we visibilise and keep an account of the grams of CO2 that we produce with our images on the internet?
Nephogram is a reflection on the virtual internet cloud and on its environmental impact in the form of carbon dioxide emissions, which are directly responsible for global warming. This art project aims to make this invisible cloud visible, to measure it and give it form and substance with the aim of raising our awareness so that we make more responsible and sustainable use of the digital devices at our disposal.
