Invisible Outfields

for Strange Festival (2022)

Invisible Outfields explores the misunderstandings of our digital selves and the magnitude of data communication that exists in our backgrounds and surroundings. We have constant connections to electronic systems spread all over the globe, from family and friends to behemoth tech companies. We are sampling our lives and leaving our imprints in a thin byte fizz across our global memory.

At times discomforting, Invisible Outfields enables an investigation into our connection to digital space. Using custom built sensors, your digital device’s electromagnetic fields are discretely sampled and presented back to you as sound and light. Tune your experience using the provided interface.
