VISUALIZATIONS OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM IN POLICY DEBATES ABOUT WIRELESS
Recent advances in communication regulation and in wireless technology have made measurement of the electromagnetic spectrum newly relevant in policy debates. This research investigates the tactics, aesthetics, and consequences of visualizing these measurements, and considers the way that new cartographies of electromagnetic radiation affect the ability to imagine communication systems, technology, and nature.
