Measure your microclimate

Intriguing call for volunteers from Goldsmiths - couldn't quite work out whether it relates to product design, installation art or a situationist experiment in psychogeography* - here's what they say:

'We are a design team from the Interaction Research Studio at Goldsmiths, University of London. Over the last year, we have been working on various digital devices for reflecting on aspects of the home’s local microclimate, such as subtle variations in temperature, light, and air currents - imagine something like an indoor weather station. Now we would like to lend these devices to you for 3 or 4 months in return for telling us about your experiences of living with them. If you are interested and live in SE4, SE8, SE14, SE23 please contact: Kirsten Boehner at or call 07779 168 516.

[in its original sense of 'the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals' (Debord) rather than current usage of 'I wandered through London waffling on, too drunk to differentiate between fact and fiction, but who cares, I got a publishing deal out of it anyway'].
