Five bodies disrupt the monopolistic world of wifi infrastructures: Future-proof corporations instrumentalise the infrastructure of existing bus-stops to feed users with free wifi, monetizing each interaction executed over their network. The people of Athens organise AWMN – a large scale DIY Mesh Network, realising the dream of a decentralized web. NGOs and Start-Ups with altruistic incentives mask second agendas of geo-politics, soft-power and neo-feudalism. And hardware suppliers monopolise the backbone of the internet for grass root movements up to multinational corporations.
The installation Power of Mesh combined 5 explanatory charts with a wireless unsupervised tool for customer dialog. It was presented during the Festival du Graphisme Chaumont 2015. In collaboration with Gilles de Brock.
