Based on your GPS location, the app shows a 360-degree visualization of the Infosphere, — the manmade ecosystem of wireless infrastructure around you. The dataset includes almost 7 million cell towers, 19 million Wi-Fi routers, and hundreds of satellites. Our digital lives depend on these very physical systems for communication, observation, and Navigation. A site specific version of the app includes wired communication infrastructure embedded in the exhibition space. Its aim is to provide a comprehensive window into the Infosphere. By revealing the defining infrastructure of these times, Architecture of Radio hopes to inspire a relation between ourselves and the technological world we are building.

During the Ars Electronica Festival (8 th –12th of September 2016) you can lend on the info desk an iPad and therefore try Architecture of Radio.
