SNUFF: WIRELESS NETWORKS SONIFICATION WORKSHOP
SNUFF_theoretic-praxis seminar about traffic & wireless telecommunications where participants construct an analog and portable device able to amplify into audible ranges electromagnetic activity produced by Bluetooth data transfer, WLAN, mobile phones, GPS, wireless phones, microwaves and several other electronic devices. During the workshop topics related with non-regulated traffic, vulnerability, data transfer interruption, obstruction and sniffing are presented/discussed.
SNUFF_amplifies electromagnetic activity into audible ranges, exposing high frequency ranges produced by wireless devices overused in contemporary societies. This electromagnetic pollution is used by http://r-aw.cc as an impulse to modify the acoustic space with audio visual performances, printed matter, lathe cut vinyl in different formats, objects, publications and pedagogic strategies. Through the process, several experiments have been produced ranging from the amplification of electromagnetic activity produced by wireless devices to the amplification of microwaves, computer based applications to visualize data traffic and public performances.
SNUFF_electronic device designed by http://r-aw.cc to de-codify electromagnetic pollution produced by wireless networks. An analog and battery-operated receiver able to amplify and de-modulate frequency ranges between 0.1 GHz to 2.5 GHz produced by wireless based networks.
r-aw.cc is a platform based in Berlin & Mexico City researching topics about irritation, data corruption, propaganda, design, hidden signals amplification and psycho-acoustics through collective working processes, site-specific interventions and publications in different formats.
