Immaterials: Light painting WiFi

A team of designers in Norway have shed some light on the complex web of digital signals that penetrate and surround us by a visual representation of WiFi signals in Oslo. For their ‘Light Painting WiFi’ project, Timo Arnall, Jorn Knutsen, and Einar Sneve Martinussen constructed a four meter tall rod covered in blinking lights. The stronger the WiFi signal around the rod, the higher the blinking lights rise. By taking slow-exposure video footage of the rod, the team captured a one of the many digital signals in our lives.
