In collaboration with Expedition Air, the brand of products made from carbon dioxide emissions, we formulated the world's first Nano paint made with nanoparticles containing solidified atmospheric carbon dioxide captured from the air.













NFT CARBON REMOVAL DIGITAL MECHANISMS








These digital mechanisms turn physical negative paintings (inverted colors) made from CO2 emissions into digital positive worlds, apocalyptic extreme climates with high concentrations of CO2 into worlds of ice with the majestic white of glaciers, traveling in time to pre-industrial atmospheres, showing temperature changes in color and using scientific data about climate change.

It is a way of dreaming about carbon capture and removal, as a powerful solution for imagine a low-carbon future supported by emerging technologies. It is a reflection about the two faces of carbon dioxide: sustains life on Earth but it's also a risk of extinction.
