Wifi Camera in Beijing and Dortmund

“Wifi Camera reveals the electromagnetic space of our devices and the shadows that we create within such spaces, in particular our wifi networks which are increasingly found in coffee shops, offices and homes throughout cities of the developed world. We will take real time “photos” of wifi space. ”

We have continued the development of the Wifi Camera, and exhibited it at two venues. We have progressed partly by documenting and showing the large number of photos we took over the last 2 years in various cities around the world, and also started developing a manual to share this technology so others can take wifi photos as well.

We also started created Lenticular Radiography Prints which allows us to display several concurrent visible networks in the same print.
