This project heavily blends the digital world our society has created by documenting radio Wifi signals in my apartment with a visible laser pointer. This is another exploration in mapping data points in a readable manner to understand the way this structure embeds itself into our private spaces at all times of the day. The final of this piece is two images depicting wireless signals in two rooms of my apartment with the use of a visible laser pointer and mirrors attached to tripods. The final process of this project was to document these strengths with digital photography and Photoshop to overlay multiple images, and change the hue of the green laser.
