Wireless Spectres

May 26, 2014 @ 2:22pm by Andrew

PHD student, Luis Hernan took a break from his studies in interactive design and architecture at Newcastle University, to explore the relationship between humans and the wireless network around them.

Using coloured LED lights on an apparatus that picks up usually invisible wireless networks, participants would move their wireless devices around them and Hernan photographed the beautiful but haunting light formations. Hernan refers to these colours as ‘Spectres’ due to their similarity to ghosts.

Hernan created this project after he became intrigued by our increasing reliance on digital devices.
