Radio, a new medium?
For several decades, the most avant-garde artists have been seizing the medium of radio to incorporate it into their work and away from its primary telecommunication function.
This emerging artistic practice continues to evolve and grow within the media arts community. Moreover, among the twelve artists represented at this year’s Sight & Sound festival “Hyperlocal”, three chose to exhibit works that exploit the medium of radio.
Discover Elettra, Émilie Mouchous’ meditative radio intervention, the live performance of Ondes circulaires by Anne-Françoise Jacques and Nicolas Dion, as well as Erin Sexton’s series of transmissive experiments in her Dimension Électromagnétique.
