My name is Jung-Hua Liu and my art project is about visualizing Wi-Fi network into colourful landscape portrait.
The aim of this project is to construct a collaborative website where wireless internet connection is used as an artistic medium.
Besides my fieldwork in different cities to collect the Wi-Fi information, we also invite Wi-Fi users to connect and take part on this innovative project.
Any participant simply needs to provide the number of their wireless rooter, which is available for everyone and does not involve disclosing any kind of private or secure information.
Each of these numbers is then converted into colours which are reflected by the specific location of the users.
Having various users connecting to the project will automatically produce something like a wi-fi abstract paintings, working simultaneously in cyberspace and the real world.
This project depends then on the participation of wi-fi users. It will become ever more complex and fascinating as more people connect from different locations.
If you want to become part of this exciting live wi-fi abstract painting, please follow to links below to enter my website and connect your wireless location to this net of cyberspace colours. You can then observe and follow ‘in colours’ how your location is crossing and interacting with other users in other locations.
