Landstream is a work by Olga Kisseleva where I collaborated exclusively as a physicist. Landstream displays the electromagnetic flux produced by digital communication technologies, in a sensitive way. These are made up of all the invisible signals which cross us (the so-called “stream”), and of which we are, most of the time, completely unaware. A program measures the flux present inside some given space, and transforms the data into visual information which generates a new kind of abstract landscape. Landstream makes us aware of the increasing electromagnetic pollution around us, caused in particular by the multiplication of waves in our environment.
Landstream was exhibited in many places in 2007, including Netherlands Media Art Institut, Amsterdam.
