Radio receivers 


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 battery-powered 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.
