Jonah Brucker-Cohen is working on a project that turns your Wifi Router into a modem-sounding reminder of the 80s/90s –
Forward Compatible (FC) is a parasitic object meant to be attached to a Wi-Fi or fixed network router. The device monitors network traffic and when packets are sent, they are converted to audio, in the form of a 2400 baud modem dialing up and connecting, and played through the device’s on-board speakers. The focus of the project is to historically inform the way we think about network connectivity in public spaces by disrupting the supposed serenity of modern technology with a reminder of the past. FC is the first of several parasitic network devices I am currently working on.
