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.

INTANGIBLE- by Denise Flasz [ MFA Design and Technology ]

  1. 1. INTANGIBLE<br />Hybrid Worlds NanoBio Art<br />Denise Flasz<br />MFA Design and Technology<br />Parsons The New School for Design<br />Professors:<br />Victoria Vesna<br />SiddharthRamakrishnan<br />
  2. 2. Impetus- Make the intangible tangible<br />
  3. 3. Proposition/ Hypothesis<br />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.<br />
  4. 4. Idea/ premises<br />Concept:<br />Interactive Electro-Kinetic sculpture inspired <br />In the intangible shape and movement<br />of radio frequency waves.<br />Interactivity:<br />Users are able to trigger a subtle vibration with the use of their cell phones. <br />The sculpture vibrates according to cell phone andWiFi Radio frequencies<br />in the ambient where installed.<br />
  5. 5. Target and audience<br />Audience role:<br />Make/receive calls<br />Target:<br />Anyone that has or is near someone with a cell phone<br />
  6. 6. Evidence<br />Physical and digital communication forms to represent intangible<br />elements,like data, concepts or even words. <br />Images from Google<br />
  7. 7. Evidence<br />Color: How it looks?<br />Movement: How it travels? <br />Shape: How it is formed?<br />Interactivity: How it moves and invades our personal space?<br />Touch<br />UsmanHaque<br />OlafurEliasson<br />
  8. 8. Methodology<br />Analog frequency data is converted to physical movement <br />Technology: Cell phone and Wifi Radio frequency power detector<br />Design: Array of iridescent Acrylic<br />Mechanics: Stepper motors, eccentric wheels and tracks.<br />
