Distant Views
Culture Catchers


Installed as Distant Views for the 2005 Boston Cyberarts Festival and subsequently as Culture Catchers at the gallery G-A-S-P. Shortwave radios, digital recorders and players, motion detectors, micro computers and antennae were hung by suction-cups on a wall of windows or sheets of plexiglass. The movement of visitors triggers sounds from around the world to fill the environment and to be twisted together. At any one moment one might hear, for example, Persian music, Christian proselytizing and the day's news in Korean. They are a sequence of non-linear ideas that, with time, leave an impression of the continuous course of life that is speaking from all corners of the globe.
