TIM SHAW & DIRTY ELECTRONICS - TRANSMISSION LINESCafé Oto, E8 3DL , [Venue Details]
A new performance-installation for spark-gap transmission and electromagnetic spectrum.
Spark gaps made from everyday objects used as conducting electrodes. Scrap metal, tin cans, chairs, barrels, cooking utensils, a bicycle wheel are hung and agitated by performative action and motor mechanisms to create intense electrical sparks and raw sound.
Whilst radio waves omitted from the high voltage constructions are picked-up by DIY coils, sound-circuits and portable radios. Sequences of charged Xenon camera flashes, Franklin bells, Jacobs Ladders and electromagnetic pumps are folded into the environment.
A wayfaring journey through the danger zone of high voltage light and sound.
Dirty Electronics & Tim Shaw’s Transmission Lines was developed during a recent residency in an old timber yard in Yamaguchi, Japan.
