The Food Detectives Fight BAC! IoT Art: Networked Art | Postscapes You pull out your phone and open a map. A blue dot appears, pinpointing your location. Here you are, the dot says. GPS, the global positioning system, is a bedrock technology of the Internet of Things, one of the earliest ways of representing real-time data about connected devices and objects. But in the parable of the dancing dot, the limitations of GPS are laid bare. Satellite Lamps, a project of design researchers Einar Sneve Martinussen, Jørn Knutsen, and Timo Arnall at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in Norway (also the group behind the ImmaterialsWiFi and RFID exploration in 2009), illuminates the changeable nature of GPS signals. In time-lapse videos, some lamps shine bright while others flash fitfully between off and dim. As designers, the trio behind Satellite Lamps want to encourage new ways of thinking about a technology that remains largely invisible. “GPS is symbolically underdeveloped,” they write at the end of an essay that accompanies the project.

Bad Gods -- Updated Monday and Wednesday On Speculative Design | Benjamin H.

Futurism, Scale Matter, Materialism åyr, Portrait #5, 2016 –> orb 13b 1.
