if you’ve ever wondered what wireless coverage looked like, artist nickolay lamm has imagined the world if we could theoretically visualize the invisible electromagnetic radiation from cellphone signals. the digital renders imagine landscapes from american cities such as chicago and new york city as hexagonal grids of vibrant chroma. each pattern of transmitted antenna radiation has been assigned to a different color frequency, combined to form a complex network of interspersed light waves. with the help of fran harackiewicz, professor of electrical and computer engineering at southern illinois university carbondale and danilo erricolo, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the university of illinois in chicago, lamm has been able to accurately depict the systematic beauty of our cellular networks.
