Situated in Peace Park, just across from the World Cup Stadium in Seoul, stands a functional art installation that lets citizens know about the quality of air in their city. The Living Light canopy consists of blocks representing each section of the city where an air monitoring station is situated. If an improvement in air quality is recorded, the corresponding block on the canopy grid lights up. Blocks are also illuminated when users send text message information requests to the structure.
