The WhiFfy Router

wiffy_router

The WhiFfy Router is a homeopathic remedy for blogger burnout and internet addiction that combines the soothing scents of an aromatherapy diffuser with the reassuring presence of your WiFi router’s flickering light. In other words, it’s a hand-built ceramic sculpture of a WiFi router that transmits the calming smell of essential oils using the heat of a candle.

Essentially, they’ve asked New York-based artists to submit ideas for projects that Belfast-based artists will respond to by making their own versions of the ideas over the next few weeks.
