A series of cable sculptures acting as antennas to broadcast sonic transmissions over short-range radio networks.



In this site-dependent work, variable lengths and configurations of thin copper cabling are installed within a space to form ephemeral antennas. Audio recordings are broadcast and distributed by the structures, then received by portable radio receivers integrated into the surrounding space—either architecturally or behind unobtrusive enclosures. Nearby bodies significantly alter the effectiveness of the transmission and reception. The resulting interference highlights a fragile relationship between physical presence, and invisible channels of communication, power, and control.
