Urban Light Art | Yeah I know, the results when art meets technology are often strange, but sometimes also groundbreaking and interesting. Timo Arnall, Jørn Knutsen and Einar Sneve Martinussen recently showed that the Graffiti Research Lab is not the only agency which combines urban arts with technology by developing a four meters tall light art tool which makes WiFi visible!
This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs. A four-meters long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting. (About the project)
In my eyes, the results the team created are a somehow nice example of how close technology and abstract art in an urban context are…
