This project is about energy consumption transparency. As we populated and created new megacities around the world, we also continue to exert pressure on infrastructures of urban living. Citizen responsibility can address such concerns. However, electric consumption in meters give abstract readings, Wattage and Lumens are confused, and drive currents are unheard of.

This project challenges the current language of power consumption and abstract meter by proposing a new language that is not only understood but also felt. The attempt is to build the link between human perception and energy consumption.
