Seeing is believing..



I have an obsession with waves. It started with working with sound transfer and radios on a project earlier this year, and extended to RFID communication, and it is currently my final thesis research.
The research associated with workshop was around investigating a technology that could exist in the future, and that would make our obsessions come true. I made 2 white boxes, one was wooden, the other was cardboard, and I brought along a number of random objects that could help me investigate the box in different contexts. I kept the waves obsession in the background of my mind, and focused on investigating and playing around with the white box as much as possible, and I have to say that it was quite fun. I made some of the best videos in my live, while taking the box to the park, to the market, and to the see. Thanks to the huge spring which I bought by accident from the horse riding shop(!), and which I have no idea what is it used for, yet, no output would have been made possible without it.

In the park, it was hanging from a tree, and it took part in Tai Chi session, the second day it had wheels and it went around a walk in downdown, then it went to the market, the third day it went to the beach (where my data for this day was lost!), but I still have the video below, where I filmed the sea waves from the prespective of the camera placed inside the spring. Strange! Even though the focus here was mainly on _seeing_ through the box, yet, the sounds generated from every experience, were increadible. At a moment, I could feel that the box was actually..breathing!

For the final presentation, I let the box represent a future technology that will enable us to actually see electromagnetic waves! I made a little DIY projector, using a lense, a lack box and a mobile phone, put the projector in side the box and let it play the video where the camera was placed inside the spring of the hanging box..which looked like live oscillations, and thats it :) . This workshop was amazing in the sense of how it opened venues to think _and present_ and very unusual, yet simple and creative terms.
