“Radio Dials’ sound/print Installation -Studio view 2012

 

Radio Dials- An Interactive Sound & Print Installation.

This installation comprised of 27 large digitals prints off Radio Dials and ‘Radio Portraits of the people sharing their memories with me.  The snippets of interviews, tuning whines, white noise  or  Morse code were arranged as three separate sound tracks which could only be initiated IF viewers stood in the correct  position in the space at the right time. It became an interactive and social event as visitors would shift their body position to  find the ‘station’. The intention was to highlight the physicality required to tune into an analogue radio rather than simply press a button.for the video click on link
