New film: Wireless in the World 2

In this film, Wireless in the world 2, simple visualisations of radio ‘spaces’ are overlaid into urban spaces. The film has been made as a follow up to this video experiment and has been specifically designed for exhibition in HABITAR at LABoral Centro de Arte y CreaciĂłn Industrial. Here is an excerpt from the exhibition [...]

Many aspects of RFID interaction are fundamentally [...]

Phantom geometry and tissue-simulant liquids

I’m investigating the visualisation of electromagnetic fields, part of our exploratory process to look at the materiality of RFID. What are we talking about when we say ‘touch-based interaction’ or ‘near field’ for instance? This investigation threw up an interesting company: Indexsar specialises in: “Turnkey test systems for the measurement of SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) [...]
