“The Anatomy of Human Breath” looks at the chemical composition of exhaled breath as a response to the air quality. The presence of Nitric Oxide, Oxygen, Carbon Oxide and Hydrogen in various proportions create patterns. “The Anatomy of Human Breath” is a side artwork of “The Human Sensor” and it has been produced as a result of ICT ART award – to investigate the eNO sensors for “The Human Sensor”.
The art installation invite viewers to examine their own breath by blowing into the tube. The data is then analysed by eNO (exhaled Nitric Oxide) and H20 sensors and outputted into a Processing sketch displaying visuals according to the data.


Kasia Molga asked me to help on developing the data visualization. In processing we made a data visualization spread over two screens, it uses sensor data send over MQTT from a bespoke made breath analyzer (made by Adrian Godwin).

“The Anatomy of Human Breath” was exhibited at FoAM in Brussels, Belgium and it has been presented to EU Parliament Commission
