Listening Space, the on-going collaboration between DXARTS faculty Afroditi Psarra and textile designer Audrey Briot, winner of the 2019 Bergstrom Award for Art and Science, is featured in the essay 'Planetary Radio', which forms part of the Sonic Continuum strand of The Contemporary Journal. In this essay, geographer and radio-amateur Sasha Engelmann, asks what environmental-climatic dynamics, intersectional modes of listening and sonic possible worlds travel around the planet through the radio spectrum.

Sonic Continuum (Mar 2020 – Nov 2021) traces practices of world-making through sound, both as a force that constitutes the world and a medium for producing knowledge about it.
