Air-Ink™ Technology: Pollution to Art


“Since 2016, Tiger Beer has worked in collaboration with India-based technology company, Graviky Labs, on a revolutionary product — Air-Ink™. Company founder Anirudh Sharma and his team have developed a method of transforming vehicle emissions into ink with filters that collect carbon soot from exhausts. If widely adopted across the UK’s fleet of taxis, the tech has the potential to remove trillions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. Since its development in 2016, Graviky Labs has harvested over 770 liters of ink — the equivalent of a diesel car being driven non-stop for nearly two and a half years. Now, using the collected ink, Tiger Beer is helping to return the carbon to the streets in the form of art….” via…HYPEBEAST

Creepy & Beautiful

Rino Stefano Tagliafierro brought back the expressive force of gestures of beauty that he springs from the immobility of canvas, animating a sentiment lost to the fixedness masterpieces. It almost seems as if we could walk through the untouched nature and watch the angels sing their chorus. A series of well selected images from the tradition of pictorial beauty are appropriated with the intention of retracing the sentiment beneath the veil of appearance. Beauty in this interpretation is the silent companion of life, inexorably leading from the smile of the baby, through erotic ecstasies to the grimaces of pain that close a cycle destined to repeat as infinitum. Indeed a beautiful work of fleeting time.”
