Fictional radio-spaces

Using inspiration from richly illustrated books on botany, zoology and natural history, Ingeborg arrived at the concept of an encyclopeadia of radio waves that contains a selection of fictional radio 'species'. Armed with a well researched and advanced knowledge of the use, application and technicalities of each radio technology she created fictional visualisations of the ways in which radio waves inhabit space. These are creative expressions based as much on personal creativity as on technical or scientific data like range and signal strength.

Some of these electromagnetic critters look positively Lovecraftian. Well worth the click.

I like how the Bluetooth diagram has suitable dentata.
