When I presented my project at the Museums of Technology and Telecommunications (the latter located inside the former), the week before last, I quickly ran the audience through the process, the bubbles and then tried to reflect a bit on why this project has had such great appeal.
Timo Arnall who was my tutor at the time of the making, and whose well-spokenness I much admire, wrote in his blog:
“This project explored radio in a unique way. Ingeborg has created visual expressions of radio that are immediately accessible and beautiful. Although their usefulness is harder to define they have provided us with many opportunities to discuss and reflect on these intangible technologies.”
I am pleased, of course, that my bubbles have indeed proved to be ‘immediately accessible’ to the extent they have, but I still believe there is more to be done when it comes to the potential for discussion and reflection. During an “Electromagnetic Week” at the Museum of Telecommunications, kids workshops will be held, where I hope to trigger children to reflect and have them draw out for themselves what they think wireless communication looks like.

The Museum of Telecommunications and The Museum of Science and Technology are, for the 3rd time, arranging a ‘Late Night at the Museum’ do, “for grown-ups only”. I’ll be presenting Bubbles at 20h00 at the Telecom Museum.

I’ve had the fantastic opportunity to show The Bubbles of Radio to the public again! This time at the Museum of Telecommunications, which lies inside The Museum of Science and Technology at Kjelsås in Oslo.

I decided to properly chain the books down this time :)

My lovely friend Natale Hugvik organised a small exhibition at an exclusive gallery at Tjuvholmen by Aker Brygge, at the heart of Oslo.
Rigging with Ola Helø, colleague from AHO, who exhibitied his Climber’s Jacket – one example of the wide range of products that the exhibition featured.

The Bubbles have appeared in a French science blog, an an article that discusses the architecture of the Internet of the Future. Click on the image to go to the article..

Exhibiting in Riga was brilliant, I love the city + hanging out with other tech-geeks was a blast! More about the event on their web-page.

The Bubbles of Radio project has been invited to the RIXC new media art show in Riga in October! A few weeks ago I sent off this suggestion for a lay-out for the stand. I still only have vague idea of what the exhibition space looks like, so this is mainly a starting point.
from the website:
The 10th edition of the “Art+Communication” festival, organised by RIXC, will take place in Riga from October 16 – 19, 2008. Entitled SPECTROPIA, this year festival continues artistic explorations within the invisible space of electromagnetic spectrum surrounding us.”

Printed samples of 150 and 200 grams paper, all potential candidates for the remake of the Bubbles of Radio.

This is a brilliant and very inspiring blog, and the post about the Bubbles of Radio is very nice too, with issues that I will definitely keep in mind with future work on this project.
“Although the press captured that project as “artist work to visualize bluetooth and wifi“ [ref to Wired], I am pretty sure there is really more to draw out of this work. For example, I would be curious to see how people are aware of these airwaves and how they have a representation of them: how do we represent ourselves the airwaves of cell-phones or microwave-oven. And maybe in a second phase to use this a material to talk with people about the existence and the shape of electromagnetic fields (it would require a less barbarian vocabulary though).
Their usefulness is indeed tough to describe (it’s more an intuition) but my impression is that making such things visual is an important first step before discussing them (as we human being are very visual-oriented).” [quoted from Pasta & Vinegar]
