This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs.
A four-metre long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting.

As a follow up to the original Wireless in the World experiment vimeo.com/3684601 this film was made for the HABITAR exhibition at Laboral:
"This new urban landscape is no longer predicated solely on architecture and urbanism. These disciplines now embrace emerging methodologies that bend the physical with new measures, representations and maps of urban dynamics such as traffic or mobile phone flows. Representations of usage patterns and mapping the life of the city amplify our collective awareness of the urban environment as a living organism. These soft and invisible architectures fashion sentient and reactive environments."
This video is about exploring the spatial qualities of RFID, visualised through an RFID probe, long exposure photography and animation.
It features Timo Arnall of the Touch project and Jack Schulze of BERG.
Skål is a media player designed for the home that lets you interact with digital media using physical objects. You place objects in a wooden bowl to play back related media on the TV. Skål makes media playful. skaal.no
This is Sniff, a soft toy dog in green cotton plush. His carefully crafted exterior qualities don’t reveal that he is anything but a cuddly toy. But wireless technology allows him to ‘sniff’ and react to objects that come close to his nose.
By focusing on non-visual interactive qualities such as tactility, sound and vibration, Sniff is designed with the particular needs of children with sight impairment in mind. But Sniff also works for everyone, young and old, where he becomes a companion in play, work and everyday life.
