In what ways are urban landscapes, our own bodies and society in general impacted by the invisible electromagnetic waves, frequencies and radiation associated with new communication technologies?

Forests of Antennas, Oceans of Waves is a series of events that delves into the phenomena of electromagnetic waves in urban environments from both an artistic and theoretical perspective.

The starting point of our project is the discourse surrounding the 5th generation mobile network known as 5G. This new global standard in wireless technology is currently being tested and expanded in Berlin, throughout Germany and in other cities worldwide and also discussed in the context of »smart city« technologies and initiatives.

In workshops, interactive walking tours, lectures, sound performances, presentations, installations and discussions, we intend to shed light on the various physical, social, legal, urban, political, biological and ecological implications of »Hertzian Space«.
