Atlas of electromagnetic space

Atlas of Electromagnetic Space

Interessante atlas do “espao eletromagntico” postado no information aesthetics. No site do Atlas of Electromagnetic Space possvel navegar por um ambiente 3D passando por todas as frequncias e aplicaes (mobile, wi-fi, AM, FM, aviao, etc.). Vale uma viagem.

Podemos considerar que estamos passeando por “territrios informacionais” que nos envolvem e permeam os lugares sem que percebamos. A cada dia vemos novas aplicaes (tecnologias mveis digitais, redes sem fio, locative media) e formas de monitoramento e tracking de movimentos a partir dos “traos” que deixamos nesse espao. Nesse sentido, lembro aqui o trabalho de Susan Hrtig, “Disconected“. Como explico em artigo a ser publicaod em breve:

“(…) Another example is the work of artist Susan Hrtig, “Disconnected” where she tries to show how wireless networks (radio waves) are creating and expanding informational territories. We are all, wherever we want or not, immersed in that radio wave spectrum. This artwork is an attempt to, in an opposite way, block this radio spectrum, disconnect people. The artist builds a tent that insulates the user preventing access to the electromagnetic cloud. Here, the “place” tent blocks the ‘informational territory.’ The tent is also seen as a nomadic architecture, but in reality, though it is mobile, it creates a striate space, an area of territory in the midst of the deterritorializated flow (Deleuze, 1980). These examples show how the issue of place is complex.”
