Speaking Through Light


The shining beauty of lasers has long been celebrated at the hacker camp PIFcamp. I got inspired and wanted to explore how lasers can be used to transport sound through space. The vast landscape of Triglavski narodni park offered the perfect dimensions for long-range laser transmissions. I explored how sound-carrying laser beams look like, how living nature alters the light, and how this affects the tonal properties of the transmitted sound. We looked at light as a specific form of electromagnetic radiation and use radio technology to modulate and demodulate the streams of coherent photons.
