Morse code has been prevalent in transmitting signals, especially in the realm of maritime, for a quite long time. Although with more advanced equipment and technology, it is growing obsolete, it still has a nostalgic charm attached to it. Now, some students at Copenhagen have used a unique method of converting Morse code into light signals.

Morse code light signal installation

The students who have created this unique installation are kostantinos frantzis, markus schmeiduch and ana catharina marques. The three are based on Copenhagen and hail from CIID. They conceived the idea of a ‘morse code light signal installation’ which would turn morse code into the light signals. These signals would then be transmitted from one harbor to another.

The installation comes complete with an iPad. Anyone can stroll to the installation and then enter morse code in the form of a tweet. This tweet, containing the Morse code, is then converted into light signals.

The contrast of the equipment, between the old and new, is quite amazing. At one hand, the installation makes use of the iPad whereas on the other hand, it utilizes antique signal lamps. Interestingly, the installations are set up on both sides of the harbor. So that if you are standing at one side, and a friend at the other side, both can easily communicate using Morse code-light signals through the Twitter account on the installation’s iPad tablets.

This installation goes on to show how technology, social media and real life, all have come to be one and the same and the conventional boundaries separating them are becoming blurred. The video posted below provides a glimpse at the project:
