Large scale exhibition installation
An interactive installation that expresses the concept of humans being “bathed in radio waves”, using a dark room filled with LED lit rods indicating the wireless fidelity’s signal strength in the area.As you walk around in this digital sea of radio waves, the wireless fidelity’s signal strength alters around you. You begin to realise your own human body is being used to manipulate these signals.
Your body reduces them when you are in between the wifi provider (in the centre of the room) and its detectors (scattered around the room).
This human interaction allows one to question whether these invisible waves penetrate through us, and whether this advanced technology in modern society is more beneficial or detrimental to us.
