Aether Mashup

2013 , Beijing, China

A portable surveillance device that monitors and displays wifi activity in real-time.

Aether Mashup is an interactive installation that explores ongoing digital exchanges and activities on a given geographical area. During a one-month residency program in the art village of Caochangdi (near Beijing),

we created a portable device that turns wifi conversations into streams of images and sounds within a specific perimeter.

The project was produced at RAWR! in Caochangdi during the Beijing Design Week. shown at the GeoCities-Smart Cities Biennale at the Chinese Museum of Digital Art and in the Make+ show at V-Art Center in Shanghai.
