Audiovisual and Pedagogical Network Installation
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an interactive installation designed to inform visitors of the network flow and the risks to connect their devices to any Wi-Fi hotspots. The system developed in C++ grabs packets using LibPCap, analyses them at low level (e.g., packet length) and also provides high-level information (e.g., port number). This new approach is based on the network flow analysis as well as on network services analysis. The software communicates with ChucK through the OSC protocol and is developed with the Open- Frameworks library in order to create unique visualisation. Users can actively take part to an interactive and didactic audiovisual exhibition system using their mobile device to send e-mails, listen to a web radio, surf on a website, read RSS feeds, in short, the experience begins once visitors exchange data with the network.
