Eclipse is a user driven, networked-art application that alters and corrupts United States national and state park images from Flickr.com based on the real-time Air Quality Index (particle pollution data) provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) at the site www.airnow.gov.

MEDIA & ACHIEVEMENTS
“We visit national parks to get away from traffic and smog. But the latter can be hard to shake, even in remote, pristine-seeming places. “Eclipse”, an open-source program created by Cary Peppermint and Leila Christine Nadir of EcoArtTech, will make air pollution’s presence visually — and viscerally — explicit.” – Anna Lena Phillips, American Scientist
