Vodaphone's receiver

March 12, 2006

Vodafone’s receiver magazine is a neutral space where pioneer thinkers challenge you to discuss exciting, future-oriented aspects of communications technologies. Started four years ago as a platform for exchange about how innovations in this sector affect societies worldwide, receiver is now established as one of the industry’s key idea generators.

I was reading an old (2002) but gold paper from Usman Hoquenamed invisible topographies. There are some good points about mobile phones.
Mobile Phones are not only communication tools, but also sensors of the invisible electromagnetic environment that surrounds us. A new term is Hertzian space. He is also talking about the emergence between architechture and art. He explains that new technologies encourage us to think designed spaces not of static silent structures that surrounds us but rather of fluid dynamic fields beyond the edge of our natural perceptions.

This link is a source listing Wireless Arts.

Couple of links that I have found through googling some names on the paper.
Varieties of Wireless Art

He mentions about a design theorist, Anthony Dunne, saying “material responses to immaterial electromagnetic fields can lead to new aesthetic possibilities for architecture.”

His project Sky Ear is exploring the hertzian habitat above Greenwich Park in London.

I like this paper because it is revealing how we can use mobile data in an artistic and informative way rather than trying to come up with new ideas of using it just inside of it.
