Exhibited June 2010, West Space Gallery
36 dismantled transistor radios, radio waves, speakers, aerials, 1.5 kms of wire, foot switch, power supply
This work probes the tension between two ways of experiencing phenomena. One way is to experience things as happening in a linear sequential fashion across time; another way is to experience things as happening simultaneously, where time and space subside. It’s an assemblage of 36 functioning dismantled transistor radios, speakers and aerials that can be activated by the viewer. The radios are set to different radio stations and operate simultaneously when activated. The viewer has no control over the volume or radio settings.
