Hertzian Field #2 is an augmented reality immersive performance – an urban ritual for the 21st century, exposing the sympathetic resonance of the human body to the invisible flow of wireless communication.
In Hertzian Field #2, 3 WiFi transmitters/scanners form an isosceles triangle radiating a dynamic electromagnetic architecture at 2.427GHz. As the performer enters the field, the water molecules in his body spin, brought into resonance by radio waves. Electromagnetic energy is transduced into molecular kinetic energy and then heat inside the body, leaving radio shadows behind. The radio field’s fluctuation is captured and analyzed, revealing the body’s electromagnetic resonance. The WiFi sensing system is coupled to an audio feedback network surrounding the audience – a sonic mirror of the field – to create an environment in which body, space, movement, sound, and WiFi waves are entangled in a quantum embrace.
Hertzian Field #2 uses a new sensing technique developed by the artist, inspired by research in radio astronomy, surveillance, and acoustics.
