This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs.
A four-metre long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting.
Chunky Move’s Gideon Obarzanek discusses upcoming Dance Massive production Connected at Malthouse; Teaming up with Californian artist, Reuben Margolin, Gideon animates both the body and the machine through physical connection between the dancers and Margolin’s purpose-built, kinetic sculpture.
Reuben Margolin, a visionary and longtime maker, creates totally singular techno-kinetic wave sculptures. Using everything from wood to cardboard to found and salvaged objects, Reubens artwork is diverse, with sculptures ranging from tiny to looming, motorized to hand-cranked. Focusing on natural elements like a discrete water droplet or a powerful ocean eddy, his work is elegant and hypnotic.
