Just finished documentation on my Forward Compatible project, a parastic physical object for a Wi-Fi or fixed router that monitors network traffic and when packets are sent, the sound of a 2400 baud modem dialing up and connecting is heard through the device’s on-board speakers. The focus of the project is to historically inform the way we think about network connectivity in public spaces by disrupting the supposed serenity of modern technology with a reminder of the past. FC is the first of several parasitic network devices I am currently working on.
