Wifi, we are all connected by its invisible pulsations of data linking us together through waves of information. No part of our lives is untouched by this web radiating from the ground up to the stratosphere, permeating walls and windows, shaping how we live each day. Within that Wifi system, objects have become networked, packed with sensors, making up the internet of things. Sensors that transform these objects into skilled things with capabilities of their own, that often surpass what humans are capable of. Are objects looking back at us? Yet, it remains imperceptible to the eye: immaterial, ethereal, and ungraspable. The wind, a similar invisible force, flows over the surface of the Earth, circulating air over the seas and continents. Although it, too, is invisible, it is able to sculpt stone into large rock formations. It creates architecture.
