Observatorio is an art project by Clara Boj y Diego Díaz, showing the “WiFi panorama” around the area where it’s been installed. It was designed to promote reflection and discussion on free networks (“redes libres”).
It’s built with a powerful WiFi unidirectional antenna, a camera and a viewfinder that shows a representation of WiFi networks in the area overlayed on the actual image of the area. It’s installed in the tower of the Universidad Laboral in Gijón (Spain).
