Our daily environments are filled with radio frequencies transmitting data wirelessly throughout the spaces we inhabit. These webs of electromagnetic waves are ever-expanding, bouncing off the objects in our homes and workplaces – yet they remain intangible.

Exposing the hidden materiality of these frequencies, the ‘Signal Theremin’ is an electronic musical instrument that can be paired with any player’s phone, transmitting different sounds depending on the strength of the signal, and if certain objects are put between the paired device and the instrument. By making Wi-Fi signals tangible, the Signal Theremin helps us to understand the invisible infrastructures of our digital world.
