Archinect - Postcards from New York 2014-11-26T19:14:43-05:00 http://archinect.com/blog/article/29413690/x-ray-wifi-vision X-Ray WiFi Vision! Greg Evans 2011-12-01T14:03:42-05:00 >2011-12-02T07:46:03-05:00 <p> Last night at the Camera-Hacking Night School event at Studio-X NYC, we learned about the <a href="http://wificamera.propositions.org.uk/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">WiFi Camera</a>&nbsp;- a series of WiFi signal detectors that uses WiFi signal strengths to map spaces behind&nbsp;impenetrable&nbsp;walls!</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://wificamera.propositions.org.uk/_/rsrc/1232470486644/Home/wifica-usmanplat-axo-copy.jpg"></p> <p> From the website:</p> <p> <em>The Wifi Camera is a camera that takes "pictures" of spaces illuminated by wifi in much the same way that a traditional camera takes pictures of spaces illuminated by visible light.</em></p> <p> <em>The camera reveals the electromagnetic space of our devices and the shadows that we create within such spaces, in particular our wifi networks which are increasingly found in our daily lives, in coffee shops, offices and homes throughout cities of the developed world.</em></p> <p> <em>With the camera we can take real time "photos" of wifi (and we're working towards having video too). These show how our physical structures are illuminated by this particular electromagnetic phenomenon and we are even able to see the shadows that our bodies cast within such "hertzian" spaces.</em></p> <p> <i><img alt="" src="http://wificamera.propositions.org.uk/_/rsrc/1265110814241/Home/wifi1.jpg?height=300&amp;width=400"></i></p> <p> <i><img alt="" src="http://wificamera.propositions.org.uk/_/rsrc/1265110824579/Home/wifi3.jpg?height=268&amp;width=400"></i></p> <p> Th...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/24662470/c-lab-on-tour-in-japan C-LAB: On Tour In Japan Greg Evans 2011-10-21T11:12:06-04:00 >2011-10-21T18:47:01-04:00 <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/3n/3n4l5gk4b98idqyt.jpg" title=""></p> <p> A recent project I assisted with at C-LAB, led by C-LAB director <a href="http://www.inaba.us" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Jeffrey Inaba</a> and fellow collaborators <a href="http://0ark.se/blog/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bj&ouml;rn Ehrlemark</a> and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.withandagainst.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betsy Medvedovsky</a>, opened in Tokyo, Japan at the Yoshioka Library&nbsp;earlier&nbsp;this month. Intended as a sort of covert take-over of this architecture publication library, the exhibit was meant as a small C-LAB retrospective that augmented Jeffrey's coinciding lecture.</p> <p> When approaching the project, we asked ourselves, "What would this library look like if C-LAB slowly became the only source of architectural broadcasting?" Our answer was a sort of conspiratorial newsletter that found itself scattered among all the rest of the magazines in the library. Slipped on top of the current displays, one would discover that the arranged newsletters made large mosaic images that only rendered a piece of the C-LAB story:</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/65/65nur951qm62crwv.jpg" title=""></p> <p> <a href="http://issuu.com/designgutter/docs/clabnewsletter?mode=window&amp;backgroundColor=%23222222" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The newsletter</a> was a really interesting format for a review of C-LAB's work over the years. Separated into four categories: Bond, Harness, Leak, and...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/22750971/postcards-from-new-york Postcards from New York Greg Evans 2011-10-04T18:52:00-04:00 >2011-10-21T11:06:38-04:00 <p> I am awful at naming things, so as usual, I have resorted to stealing song titles. This one has been inspired by the lovely <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjzVbXeD_8E" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"Postcards from Italy" by Beirut.</a></p> <p> Since I've graduated from The Ohio State University and have moved on to the so-called "real world," I found it necessary to leave KSA updates to a yet-to-be-named school blogger, and instead, start this new page for sharing things. However, if you're interested in my earlier entries at the KSA, check them out <a href="http://archinect.com/blog/21449044/knowlton-school-of-architecture-greg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here.</a></p> <p> Long story short, I am now the proud owner of a Master of Architecture diploma, and have taken off from my home in Cleveland, OH and have landed in New York City, where I am a collaborator at C-LAB (Columbia Laboratory for Architectural Broadcasting). It's been an exciting three weeks, but more on that later...</p> <p> Anyway, as the description says, I'll mainly be sharing things that keep me busy during the day - whether that's architecture, design, music, food, coffee, cool fonts, or any other drivel I feel like ...</p>
