Materializing the wi-fi? A bright idea

Making the invisible visible - in this case the wi-fi - did just that three young Norwegians in Oslo. To materialize these waves, Timo Arnall, Jorn Knutsen and Einar Martinussen Sneve used a light pole and a camera. The trio walked the area with a bar Grünerløkka 4 meters equipped with 80 light emitting diodes (LEDs).

This bar is equipped with an electronic device measuring the intensity of wi-fi signal. The signal is more powerful, it yad'ampoules that light up. Thanks to their long exposure night photos, the three designers of the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) set the luminous trail left by the removal of their display device.

Result: These powerful images of a ubiquitous networking. The project site: yourban. No
