Interdisciplinary artist duo Dianaband (Wonjung Shin 신원정 and Dooho Yi 이두호) from Seoul guided this workshop to utilize mobile battery-powered ESP32 WiFi modules for publishing zine content. We built small web publications on top of Hotspot login screens. If you get a WiFi signal, you get a pop-up page which not associated with the WWW. On top of this you can build a small web page. Content can be audio, text or image files with a limit of around 2MB, and participants attached sensors to the module or to plan an inter-connected activity between the viewers. We explored the possibilities of hotspot publishing conceptually as well as technically. Check out Dianaband's work [here].
