Faux Radio (2016)

Within an ambiguous object, an arduino-powered device plays specific audio tracks based on sensed distance. The tracks are from audio recorded off of various radio devices and stations, a mix of music, news, and special programming.

This work is inspired by the way in which radios are tuned and how our bodies in relation to the distance between us and a radio device can actually change what we hear/what station is tuned to. The audio was chosen to show the greatest opposition in themes, yet still display some uniformity of what kinds of topics are generally given to us over radio.
