Soundless Nature

Esteban Agosin

Saturday, October 21, 2023 - 7:00pm to Sunday, October 22, 2023 - 12:00pm

Soundless Nature is a durational installation composed of a collection of everyday found obsolete electronic devices, including old TV monitors, Wi-Fi routers and handheld radios, among others.

Small robotic inductors will capture the electromagnetic radiation from these devices and transform the signals into sound.

With this piece, we will experience a speculative world where the inaudible nature of electromagnetic fields come to life, generating a sound and visual ecosystem from otherwise wasted electronic devices.

About SPAM New Media Festival:

This year we launch SPAM, a Seattle based experimental arts festival which brings together practitioners working on the fringes and frontiers of new media art and knowledge production. Taking place at various venues across Seattle, the yearly festival consists of a program of exhibitions, performances and discussions rooted in, or emerging from, technology driven art and digital culture. This includes, but is not limited to, the projects of artists and researchers working within the fields of AI, robotics, sound, experimental video, VR, wearable technology, photogrammetry and radio.

For this year’s program, SPAM is thankful to be collaborating with Henry Art Gallery, Mini Mart City Park, Method Gallery, Gallery 4Culture, Jack Straw Cultural Center, Georgetown Steam Plant and Meany Hall at the University of Washington.
