We’ve always loved strong WiFi signals. For us, these are more than just electronically transmitted magic beams that give us unlimited access to the world of the internet. This is exactly why this revelation by an artist named Luis Hernan has left us jaw-dropped. Luis’ project, the Kirlian Device mobile application, translates WiFi signals into a five-color heatmap scheme where red means stronger signals and blue means weaker signals. Using the application, Luis was able to create a series of performance art that captures these WiFi signals as colorful streaks in the air, using low exposure photography.
Quoting Luis, “The fact we are becoming increasingly reliant on something that we can’t see intrigues me. I wanted to find a way to show the wireless which is around us and also to show how it changes.” The effect is indeed stunning and we’d sincerely love to see more such concepts by Luis Hernan!
