An overview of do-it-yourself Wi-Fi antennas, constructed from a combination of pots and pans, dishes and cans through which people from around the world give shape to their collective dream of creating an alternative networks. Each of these objects tells part of the story of individuals and groups, who each in their own way try to reconfigure the internet’s infrastructure to achieve this goal.
