(Originally posted by Olga in viralprojects.com) TEST: How can we sense light on a particular range of the visible spectrum? Certainly one of the most accurate sensors for such a thing is the human eye. Equipped with highly refined photosensitive cells the eye is capable of discerning between frequencies which are just a few nanometers … Continue reading

DIY Spectrometer

I finally decided to try to build this DIY spectrometer I had seen last month in a website [http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~zhuxj/astro/html/spectrometer.html].

    Olga carries practical and theoretical research in the field of media arts. She works as a co-editor with Furtherfield.org while she pursues a practice-based PhD at Goldsmiths. Her research project looks into assemblages of sunlight, human bodies and machines. She is particularly interested on subtle modes of communication across bodies of radically different nature. She looks at the ways in which electronic circuits, computational systems, endocrine processes and neurological happenings intermingle. The tools she develops are speculations about the undercurrents of body communication.
