A year the YOUrban project released the film ‘Immaterials: Light painting WiFi’. Since then the film has been viewed over a million times and spread far across the internet, finding its way into many different contexts and taken up in various fields. It has received broad international coverage through traditional news media, design magazines, television, radio, popular science, exhibitions, awards, books, and research. It is still being discussed on blogs, websites and is still being reported and shared on social media. In many ways, the film has become a part of popular culture.

It’s odd to read my own thoughts, written on screen but thought in the sky.
Following the presentation of the paper ‘Mapping of work areas in a platform supply vessel: a case study’ at the RINA conference Human factors in ship design and operation on the 17th of November 2011, the UBC project was featured in the acknowledged publication Ship & Boat International.
