Over the Air is a robotic performance that involves signals generated from data based on the world’s air quality index and an industrial robot arm that reconstructs this data to generate a drawing and sound. This artwork reflects the correlation between future industries and environmental pollution, and at the same time reveals various aspects of data interpretation. Through this, the viewer can experience the result of the assumption of the map drawn by the data contour of each city in audio-visual form.
