Objects of Desire

Desires of Objects of Desire guide a Neo-Situationist's walk through an invisible city of electromagnetic waves. The play-map constitutes of real names of wireless access points, found during a “WIFI-Sniff” through the city of Gijon. Names of actual urban WIFI zones are tagged like street-names in the exhibition space while aether waves with the same subjective names are also superimposed on the arts space, as play ground. 
An SM (Standard Model) game console serves as portable Wunder-Toy to indicate the electromagnetic waves of networks, as well as waves emitted by tagged objects. Acquiring this game console, players start a Dérive aiming to track these tagged objects that wish to be moved home. The objects contain stories, desires and obsessions. Follow the object's desire, read Situation(ist) quotes, apply New Babylon instructions! You will probably jump parcour-like over exhibition walls... Or proclaim a Détournement LS SM Sniff manifesto!
