Affect (Variable Frequencies) is a series of cable sculptures and reflexive sound work. Using unshielded cabling, antennas are positioned within a gallery space in combination with a FM transmitter that broadcasts on a site-specific frequency. This is spatialized with multiple receivers whereby bodies in the space significantly alter the effectiveness of the antennas, resulting in a shifting soundscape and connection to nearby radio bands. In this way, the work looks to highlight the fragile relationship of physical presence and resulting impact on omnipresent yet invisible channels of communication.
