Designer creates fascinating ghostly visualizations of Wi-Fi signals using an Android app

So much of the world today is invisible to cameras. Technology operates in a light-less world of zeroes and ones, electromagnetic waves that fly over our heads in ever-increasing abundance.

“Digital Ethereal” is a project by designer Luis Hernan that used long-exposure photography to create fascinating visualizations of Wi-Fi signals. Hernan visualized the signals with his Android app Kirlian Device mobile, which displays Wi-Fi signal strength with an array of colors.

The resulting images reveal these invisible signals that Hernan says remind him of ghosts. From the Digital Ethereal project website:

I BELIEVE OUR INTERACTION WITH THIS LANDSCAPE OF ELECTROMAGNETIC SIGNALS, DESCRIBED BY ANTONY DUNNE AS HERTZIAN SPACE, CAN BE CHARACTERIZED IN THE SAME TERMS AS THAT WITH GHOSTS AND SPECTRA.

THEY BOTH ARE PARADOXICAL ENTITIES, WHOSE UNTYPICAL SUBSTANCE ALLOWS THEM TO BE AN INVISIBLE PRESENCE. IN THE SAME WAY, THEY UNDERGO A PROCESS OF GRADUAL SUBSTANTIATION TO BECOME TEMPORARILY AVAILABLE TO PERCEPTION. FINALLY, THEY BOTH HAUNT US. GHOSTS, AS DERRIDA WOULD HAVE IT, WITH THE SECRETS OF PAST GENERATIONS. HERTZIAN SPACE, WITH THE FRUSTRATION OF INTERFERENCE AND SLOWNESS
