the sound behind the silence (Graduate Show)

We are surrounded by electro-magnetic radiation. Our planet has an electro-magnetic field (EMF), as do our bodies. Man-made electronic equipment such as microwave ovens, mobile phones and computers, DVD players, TV screens, Belisha beacons and bank ATMs contribute to the all day, every day bombardment of EMF.

the sound behind the silence combines EMF recordings from walks around Aberystwyth and shadows made from EMF sensor circuits. The installation seeks to address our exposure to the proliferation of EMF radiation and our reliance on the multitude of electronic devices and appliances that fill our lives.
