A hidden world encompasses us – at work, on our way, in the household – and it is constantly growing. Soon there will be billions of networked IoT (Internet of Things) devices that will accompany us on every step. Paul Rascheja has collected and visualized countless open IoT data. “I find this invisible digital world, which, like a hidden layer, consists of artifacts of our world and leads its own life fascinating” says Rascheja. “IoT are like microorganisms that communicate with each other and emit vast amounts of data. Data is like color, you can use as you wish, paint with it, shape it and move it. I’ve prepared the data accordingly and used IT to move a 3D object in virtual space, like a cloth in the wind, but it’s data from IoT that move the object. “
