Radio radiation can’t be seen by the human eye and besides the scientific visualisations, there isn’t any visual language for this invisible electro-magnetic field. However, the aim of the project was to collect as many different kinds of visualisations as possible and to give radiation a dynamic, visual face.
After an intense research, it became clear that the form depends on the observer thus their are many different forms possible. I created a web-based tool to generate custom forms.
The answer of 7 questions such as ›How would the shape of radiation be?‹ changed the form in real-time. The finished form could be transmitted to an online gallery.
The code was published as open-source and the project also became a Google Chrome Experiment.
