Between the 5th and the 13th of December 2021 took place a visual art installation on the big LED screen at Hötorget, in the heart of Stockholm downtown, as part of the Nobel Week Lights. An installation implemented by the rethread.art collective.
This installation, named RFC:675:08, received the Internet traffic that came in and out of Stockholm, in real time. This is an extraordinary amount of data about where Stockholm connects, where it is accessed from, when it it is connected or for how much data. In order to let citizens experience this massive, yet invisible traffic that comes in and out of the city, RFC:675:08 showcases this amazing digital activity in 7 movements.
More details are available on the installation’s page: https://rethread.art/projects/rfc-675-08.html
