Nickolay Lamm uses a multitude of colors to show the invisible Wi-Fi channels that make up the overall Wi-Fi signal and imagines what freeze frames of Wi-Fi look like in space.


Wi-Fi is transmitted in waves that have a particular height, distance between each other and travel at certain speeds. The waves have a unique transmission band enabling them to travel uninterrupted by other signals. Lamm’s images portray this idea and explore how the Wi-Fi data travels in different ways such as pulses, and how it’s divided into different sub-channels that he represents through the different colors of the rainbow.
