Intangible is an electro-kinetic sculpture that reacts to radio frequency waves from cell phones and WiFi in real time. The RF spectrum is one of the many unperceivable phenomenon that are in constant interaction with us. To shape this sculpture, I was mainly inspired by quantum principles like waveforms and particles. I analyzed existent theories of electromagnetic waves, movement, and functionality to produce a tangible representation of our everyday interaction with radio frequency waves.

  • 2. Impetus- Make the intangible tangible
  • 3. Proposition/ Hypothesis
    If I make a dynamic, tangible sculpture representing an imperceptible force, assigning it interactive attributes from its spectrum’s data, I propose that participants interacting with it could form conclusions about its existence.
  • 4. Idea/ premises
    Concept:
    Interactive Electro-Kinetic sculpture inspired
    In the intangible shape and movement
    of radio frequency waves.
    Interactivity:
    Users are able to trigger a subtle vibration with the use of their cell phones.
    The sculpture vibrates according to cell phone andWiFi Radio frequencies
    in the ambient where installed.
  • 5. Target and audience
    Audience role:
    Make/receive calls
    Target:
    Anyone that has or is near someone with a cell phone
  • 6. Evidence
    Physical and digital communication forms to represent intangible
    elements,like data, concepts or even words.
    Images from Google
  • 7. Evidence
    Color: How it looks?
    Movement: How it travels?
    Shape: How it is formed?
    Interactivity: How it moves and invades our personal space?
    Touch

  • 8. Methodology
    Analog frequency data is converted to physical movement
    Technology: Cell phone and Wifi Radio frequency power detector
    Design: Array of iridescent Acrylic
    Mechanics: Stepper motors, eccentric wheels and tracks.
