A live performance listening to radio waves through home-made no-power, low-budget ‘foxhole’ radios, (using wire, razorblades, scrap cardboard and safety pins) attached to fences - hijacking these as our antennas to connect with the radio spectrum.
The performance was a work in progress, part of our collective's ongoing experiments with feminist approaches to amateur radio and the radio spectrum as artistic material.
