Michael Blum and I have developed a project proposal for a public intervention project that utilizes data art/visualization called ‘Invisible Crowds’.
Invisible Crowds aims to raise awareness of the sheer volume and diversity of invisible waves that are constantly bouncing around public spaces.
For this proposal we developed the above presentation and a more detailed writing below.

As training to make our very own exhibits someday, my class is making
dioramas of a daily ritual from our personal lives.
I chose to demonstrate the daily ritual of wireless communication!

As part of a workshop-style course called ‘The Fungus Among Us’ I have developed a conceptual use for
Mycelium networks called Net Net – Fungus Online. Here is the presentation I gave:

The instant an Arduino or Raspberry Pi connects to the web (with a public IP) it is out there for anyone – or anything – to detect.
connected devices class, my classmates and I all saw this vulnerability firsthand. After leaving our connected thermostats on for a week, we experienced our devices being scanned and sometimes attacked by machines from across the globe.

The connected thermostat
I was building earlier is now complete! 🌡🌡🌡
This thermostat works like a
Nest Thermostat (though clearly not as pricey ); collecting the current temperature and sending that information to an online server.
Here is the repo for the project.

A thermostat appliance only needs to send a few bits/bytes of information to get its point across. It can also be used to send sensor information. In this case, a temperature sensor!

I have Phillips Hue at home, so using the nice instructions from
ITP Light & Interactivity I was able to connect to my home’s hue setup as a developer. Here is a snapshot of my home’s current setup (collected through a GET request after connected):
5 lights and a bunch of scenes

I used Node.js and Express to make a local server with some very basic routing features.
the name of the server is ‘lilserv’
The repository for this project and other connected devices projects can be found here. This post is contained to the ‘lilserv’ folder.

Cryptomania is a sculpture designed as commentary on the cryptocurrency pandemonium. It lights up based on the 1 hour price change (a percentage value) of a particular crypto-currency – Ethereum.
Note: For details on how the physical enclosure was made, read more here. For details on the code and wiring of the crystal, read more here.

Lets call it CRYPT0MANIA – the connected crystal.
This post is about the crystals digital details – because it works – it really works!
Note: For a summary of the sculpture overall, read more here. For details on how the physical enclosure was made, read more here.
