I Am This Radio. Installation for transmitter, synthetic voice and radio.
The radio is personalized as a female entity in communication with a listener. The intonated poem draws on this volatile relationship on multiple levels: gender, linguistics, communication.

I am this radio

People imagine many things. Ever thought how it is to be a radio? This one tells you how she feels (it’s a female one). “I am this Radio” invites you into a relationship that is half spoken half dreamt. Between the words and waves there is a veil: a veil of noise. “Imagine it like a curtain, in a house in the country” or don’t imagine anything and hear the sounds around you.
