Thin copper cabling is used to make radio antenna inside of white-walled gallery spaces. These structures are used to distribute audio recordings via FM radiowaves in the surrounding space. The signal is received by hidden portable FM radio receivers. Interference from the environment creates an unstable and shifting connection to the signal.
