Rumble Light is a graphic representation of Internet abstract concept using the Tube Map as reference.
Rumble Light is a Web based work, its name come from the idea of the sound that produce the computer light screen. It consists of a web site application that continually reproduce a fractal tube map: the London Tube map. The visitor is able to navigate these space, and watch videos and pictures taken in those stations that have been uploaded to the web. On a certain area inside the fractal representation, a new element appears: an anomaly. In the same way that a computer bug operates, the tube map of another city emerge, creating a sort of connection or bridge between the two networks.
Rumble Light, does not use fictitious characters or imaginary spaces in order to try to explain the Internet, but rather a real space, something existing in our real world, a space daily occupied by millions of people in the world: the space of the world´s metropolitan undergrounds. Rumble Light shows how graphic representations of abstract concepts such as space, time or internet can potentially help to its comprehension.
