Multimedia Installation Sonifies WiFi Use

Russian multimedia artist Dmitry Morozov, aka ::vtol::, shared this video, documenting a recent installation, Mayak.

Here’s what Morozov has to say about it:

Mayak is an interactive sound installation consisting of four LTE-modems connected to four Wi-Fi routers.

The LED responsible for the display of the Wi-Fi-based data transmission from each of the routers is connected to an Arduino board. Arduino analyses the “flashing”, and triggers the synthesizer generating sounds.

To all intents and purposes, the installation represents four open Wi-Fi Internet access points. By connecting to these points, people influence, through their network activity, a rhythmic sound generation process.

Details on the installation are available at his site.
