Waste Management is a challenge globally, in African cities littering is proving to be a menace . #Nailitter seeks to solve this through a mix of artistic data visualisation and data science. Making art based experiences that inform city dwellers of their littering patterns, habits and effects on environment then enabling the public to respond to these art works and interact with the process of creation of new iterations on these pieces based on the new data is desired.
