Jewelry Made from Carbon Pollution
on 09 September 2015
Artist Daan Roosengaarde wants to clean up the world’s air and, in the process, make beautiful jewelry. To do so, he’s designed a massive building-sized air-purifier that could suck the carbon particles from the sky and then compress those particles into tiny gemstones. Each jewelry piece would hold up to 1,000 cubic meters-worth of air pollution and would serve as a neat reminder to keep our skies clean. Roosengaarde has taken to Kickstarter to fund his idea and plans to build the first “Smog-Free Tower” in his home city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
