Satellite Lamps is a project that reveals one of the most significant contemporary technology infrastructures, the Global Positioning System (GPS). Made with Einar Sneve Martinussen and Jørn Knutsen as part of the Yourban research project at AHO, it continues our project of revealing the materials of technologies that started in 2009 with RFID and WiFi.… Continue reading Satellite Lamps
Internet machine is a multi-screen film about the invisible infrastructures of the internet. The film reveals the hidden materiality of our data by exploring some of the machines through which ‘the cloud’ is transmitted and transformed. Film: 6 min 40 sec, digital 4K, 25fps, stereo. Installation: Digital projection, 3 x 16:10 screens, each 4.85m x… Continue reading Internet machine
Early in 2005 I drafted a project together with the Oslo School of Architecture & Design that was designed to look at Near Field Communication (NFC) with an interaction design and user-centred perspective. In December 2005 the project was funded in full by the Research Council of Norway. So since March 2006 we have been setting up the project and conducting preliminary exploratory research work. You can see our ongoing process on the project weblog (and pick up the RSS feed too).
For the last couple of weeks I have been experimenting with tagging personal space with NFC. This started by embedding RFID tags in my desk, to use it as an information surface for contacts, SMSes and links.
[one_half] This work explores the visual link between information and physical things, specifically around the emerging use of the mobile phone to interact with RFID or NFC. It was a presentation and poster at Design Engaged, Berlin on the 11th November 2005. Download the icons (PDF, 721KB, poster for more details). The icons range from… Continue reading Graphic language for touch
Timo Arnall & Even Westvang.
At the Iceland inside and out workshop Even Westvang and Timo Arnall collaborated on a project looking at ways of contextualising photographs by time and geography. We chose to shift the balance of representation away from location, towards image and time. This is a summary of our ideas and process, with an initial working prototype.
My piece for ‘Afar’ in Copenhagen documents the time from 27 February to 19 May 2004. It presents a linear sequence of images alongside personal maps.
