Network Study XII — Ghosts

from Selected Network Studies by Network Ensemble

  • Label: NUKFM

    2GB SD card, vacuum-sealed in a UV-printed mylar package.

    'Selected Network Studies' collects audiovisual experiments with network infrastructures carried out by the artist during the period 2015-17. Executed using custom hardware and software, each Network Study focuses on the networks permeating sensitive urban locations through sound, graphs and textures.

    As a space is explored on foot, wireless data is collected from the local networks of airports, embassies, financial and internet exchanges, religious building and data centres. The transcript of network activity is then converted into sonic signals, varying in response to the typology and intensity of the data, and visualised as a textual overview, a taxonomy or an aggregate of data packets, alongside a warping visualisation of the region explored, replicated through geomapping software.

    The release includes an hour worth of video, 45 minutes worth of music and documentation of the custom hardware and software.

As the hum of conversation subsides, the performance enters the mystical slice of the wireless internet, where lost, corrupt, broken and unknown data packets sit. Trapped between worlds these indistinct packets are rendered as bells and, when strong enough, rich bass. Their intention and destination is unclear, and they fade out into the gallery space.
