‘Selected Network Studies’ collects audio/visual experiments carried out by the Network Ensemble, transforming WiFi data into sound with custom machines and software.
The UV-printed, vacuum-sealed mylar package contains a 2GB SD card featuring 1 hour of video material and 45 minutes of sound material. Texts and images documenting the hardware and software built for network exploration are included, alongside details of the data collection and performance sites.
The Network Studies included explore the invisible communication infrastructure that permeates urban spaces through sound, graphs and distorted visuals. In it, physical walks, virtual fly-overs, cyber data and State forces collide, showing patterns of wireless activity covertly collected while walking in locations where network infrastructure and structures of power intersect.
