Visualising Hertzian Space


This project explores how an ambient display can be used to promote awareness of invisible phenomena such as EMF (electro magnetic fields) which occur all around us as we continue to be immersed in an increasingly wireless world. The display is designed to encourage reflection on how these technologies can have (literally) unseen effects and what it may mean for ourselves and the environment.

Based on research and an iterative design process a display was built using sensors, arduino and LED technology. Users can interact with the display by using their mobile phones and the radiation it emits to light up and change the display.
