Free Wi-Fi is a non-linear audio visual installation manifested in the screens and speakers of visitors' devices. With a collage of found footage and text, it reenacts a series of contemporary events turning them into Simulacra that creates a dystopian fiction-reality. The installation stages a theater of power and control, playing with how the consumption of overly mediated images of events has its meaning recuperated by commercial technological platforms.
