WiFi Art by Luis Hernan

Scientist/Artists Luis Hernan has developed a way to make art out of wifi signals. He uses long-exposure photography to create colorful, ghost like images of wifi waves zooming around the air. To create the patterns of streaking light, he created a device that turns different strengths of wifi signals into different colors — he calls the work, “Digital Ethereal”.
