Space for privacy (2)
The Digital Shelter Kit contains self-adhesive tape -with “digital shelter – stand inside the line” printed on it, a mobile phone jammer and an instruction booklet.
Once the location is chosen, the tape is stuck in place and the mobile phone jammer activated. An electronic space is created by the demarcation of the boundaries of the mobile phone jammer by the taped rectangle. This proposal suggests the potential of electronic spaces by creating a shelter that prevents mobile phone signals from penetrating its boundaries.
This kit is part of Digital Shelter, a PhD project by Pedro Sepulveda-Sandoval, that explores how critical responses to the surveillance and telecommunication systems in the city can inform the development of aesthetic possibilities for electronic spaces.
