Indoor Air Cartoon Journal is a public educational resource informed by artistic research, providing indoor air quality (IAQ) educational experience to students, industry, community, and academics, with audiences from over 100 countries. The artistic research involves asking artistic research questions, review of scientific literature and other relevant sources to set up critical and reflective thinking that induces learning from the reviewed sources to form educational experience, i.e., technical knowledge and skills and communication skills, for creating creative works (fine arts and creative writings) on IAQ. The creative works are shared publicly to invoke readers' critical and reflective thinking to induce learning needed for developing an educational experience that can be used to improve the IAQ industry, education practices, and healthy living.
