Radios are the iconic portal to the disembodied speaking voice.

I love the contradiction of a solid object (a radio) and an ephemeral invisible presence (the audio tracks).

The speaking voice disconnected from a body can invoke intense listening, a kind ofattention like no other.

Transfixing, transporting are words used to describe the conjuring of a world in your head, in the mind,
in the charged space where radio and listener are a sender-receiver unit, a one on one system of intimacy.

Traditionally radio trolls different locations, events, and people…a kind of funnel drawing multiple things into one place.

My radios are using that trope of broadcast, its inherent bringing together of disparate elements in one location, one object.

I am the scanner.

On my dial language becomes material as well as immaterial.
