Transmissions

2017

A four-channel sound installation for car radios, commissioned by the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs for the Edgewood, NM Town Park and Pavilion. The audio featured a conversation among three of the town’s residents on the topic of “persistence and change,” a theme chose by the New Mexico DCA. Each voice in the conversation was recorded separately and then broadcast on a separate radio transmitter. Thus, multiple cars and viewers will had to be present to hear the entire conversation. A fourth radio transmitter broadcast a field recording of wind blowing at the site, a prominent and persistent environmental feature in Edgewood.
