Light Painting with WiFi

Norway-based Timo Arnall, a designer working with interactive products and media, presents Immaterials: Light Painting WiFi, an exploration of the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces. Arnall and his team of collaborators create “light paintings” by revealing signal strength in long-exposure photographs.

“This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs. A four-metre tall measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting.”

Clearly, Arnall was not using the weak-ass WiFi in my building (courtesy of “comboplatter”), otherwise his canvasses might be blank.

Welcome to one man's search for meaning through media making. Whether you're an active "creative," or an artist-adjacent culture serf, perhaps you will find my (mis)adventures in the screentrade, publishing, journalism and other arts edifying and inspiring — or at least mordantly humorous. More about me here.
