The waves of electromagnetic radiation in space penetrate us at all times. Man is not able to perceive, feel or see this radiation. However, for us today it is an elementary communication technology, from radio, radio, television to mobile phone technology and WLAN everything communicates with electromagnetic radiation. 
The project "Waves in the wind" is dedicated to this topic:
The electromagnetic radiation in space becomes the imput of the project and plays with the plastic bag depending on the level of radiation. The FM radiation in the frequency range 2000 - 5875 GHz is recorded and translated to the fan control by means of an algorithm. The project thus becomes a measuring instrument of the electro-magnetic radiation in the room and shows it by playing with the plastic bag.
