Digital Rituals / 2015

 

Technology is comprehensive and we all have our rituals while using these technologies.

Focusing on WIFI signals, I categorized WIFI in 4 steps:

 

1. Stealing WIFI; jumping in the air with hands up

2. WIFI Check-in; flapping hands on the side and moving around

3. Searching for better WIFI connection; walking around lumbering.

4. Online/Offline; sitting up and down.

 

Using choreography, this allowed me to visually represent WIFI signals in a graphic manner. Having difficulties shaping something that is not to be seen, I decided to focus on material shapes that were known for distorting

the actual WIFI signal. These materials being metal, concrete, marble and water. The final approach is to combine visual animation with the WIFI choreography.
