How to materialize invisible data, inherent to wireless communication protocols? Author: Béatrice Lartigue, Lab212Commissioned by: ISDAT, Toulouse, FRACourse: Master DesignTopic: WiFi, “Wireless Fidelity” refers to a set of communication protocols used for wireless data transmission within a computer network. “Wireless communication is thus invading our functional space. Some people speak of an ambient network, like…
Created by Mathias Maierhofer and Valentina Soana at the ICD, ‘Self-Choreographing Network’ is a project aiming to challenge the prevalent separation between (digital) design and (physical) operation processes of adaptive and interactive architectural systems.
Designed and constructed by ART+COM Studios in collaboration with Futurium and Schiel Projekt, ‘Neo-Natur’ is a permanent installation for Berlin’s Futurium exhibition that explores our potential futures from different areas of life––from self-sufficient cities, to the future of work and ideas for more sustainable consumption.
Created by Richard Vijgen, ‘Hertzian Landscapes’ is a live visualization of the radio spectrum. It includes a digital receiver to scan large swaths of radio spectrum in near real-time and using Three.js visualises thousands of signals into a panoramic electromagnetic landscape.

Created by Shunichi Kasahara in collaboration with Satoru Higa, Takuto Usami, Shotaro Hirata and Tetsuya Konishi, “Superception” (Super + perception) is a research framework that uses computer technologies to intervene and transform human perception.
Dökk (‘darkness’ in Icelandic) is the new live-media performance by fuse* and the natural evolution of Ljós (‘light’). Dökk is about a journey throughout a sequence of digital landscapes where the perception of space and time is altered.
Dan Tapper is a British artist based in Toronto that combines his interest in code and celestial form and his recent research project “Turbulent Forms” visualizes and sonifies various cosmic phenomena. To mark the recent exhibition of this work (and related collaborations with several composers) we present this extended conversation with the artist about cosmology and data aesthetics.
Created by Juliane Götz and Sebastian Neitsch of Quadrature and currently on view within the Ars Electronica exhibition at the DRIVE Volkswagen Group Forum in Berlin, “Positions of the Unknown” is an installation of 52 custom-made mini machines that, ever so slowly, track unidentified objects (possibly classified satellites) in Earth’s orbit.
Created by Leslie Nooteboom, komorebi is a platform that uses a robotic projector and generative projections to replicate the natural reflections and shadows of sunlight. komorebi can create sunlight filtering through leaves or a dance of light and shadow.
PSAD Synthetic Desert III is a (semi) anechoic chamber that endeavors to emulate the silence and emptiness of the Northern Arizona desert. Initially conceived by the American artist Doug Wheeler in 1968, the project was finally realized at NYC’s Guggenheim last week as part of the Panza Collection Initiative.
Created by Luiz Zanotello, The Aerographer is an installation that explores the state of uncertainty in times of ubiquitous technological mediation, borders among territories and boundaries among bodies.
New solo exhibition by Ryoichi Kurokawa featuring the stunning ‘constrained surface’ and the ‘unfold’, new project exploring data taken from giant molecular clouds in space through beautifully visual and sonic environments that showcase the birth of stars.
On February 28, 2014, the world’s first art satellite, ARTSAT1: INVADER was launched as a piggyback payload of the H-IIA F23 launch vehicle. INVADER, a 10 cm cube 1U-CubeSat with a mass of 1.85 kg continued its steady operation on orbit, successfully completed an array of artistic missions before reentering the Earth’s atmosphere for disintegration on September 2.
Created by Yingjie Bei and Yifan Hu at ITP, Moon Phases allows the audience to input any date and it will show the moon phase for that night (from the northern hemisphere’s perspective).
Created by Berlin based studio Quadrature, Satelliten is a custom build machine that brings the invisible movement of passing satellites in lower orbit to a tangible medium and scale.
RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
Created by Nadezda Suvorova, MIKMA an exploration game for iOS that uses computer vision and the sensors embedded in the device to call for new visual perspectives of world around us using scientific imaging.
Developed at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Spaxels (a portmanteau word from space pixels) are LED-equipped quadcopters. They make up a drone swarm that can “draw” three-dimensional figures in midair.
Lunar Surface is the latest in the series of projects by the Kimchi and Chips duo investigating digital light as a semi-material to articulate digital visual mass in physical space.
