We have just launched a new project called Satellite Lamps where we investigate and reveal one of the central infrastructures of the networked city, the Global Positioning System (GPS). This project continues our project of visualising the materials of technologies that started in 2009 with our studies of RFID and WiFi. With Satellite Lamps we now explore the material, spatial and temporal qualities of GPS in cities.
The city is filled with an invisible landscape of networks that is becoming an interwoven part of daily life. WiFi networks and increasingly sophisticated mobile phones are starting to influence how urban environments are experienced and understood.
