AiryLight is a project created by artist Annelie Berner to express real-time local air-quality data through changing light patterns projected on the ceiling above a lamp. Designed as Berner's thesis for the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University, it measures air quality and translates the results into a visual—the more complex the pattern, the worse the air is to breathe. AiryLight also captures a month's worth of data and distills it into a brief light show periodically.

Presented in connection with the 2015 Athens Slingshot Festival focusing on music, technology and electronic art.
