WIFI Meets CityScape = Has Art Baby.

The Immaterials project, seen in the film below, uses technology to visualize and track wifi networks across various neighborhoods in Oslo and contextualizes the invisible data streams flowing and developing around us. I’m pretty impressed by this!

Immaterials: Light painting WiFi from Timo on Vimeo.

From their site:

“‘Immaterials: Light painting WiFi’ points towards potentials for materialising and contextualising invisible technologies through light painting and visualisations. Hopefully, the film situates the networked city within the everyday environments in which it take place. The light paintings illustrate how the networked city can be both ubiquitous, messy, informal and seamful, and emphasise how the invisible landscape of networks is another layer of the dense and complex urban contexts we already know.”
