ABOUT THE INSTALLATION
‘Traffic’ captures human orchestrations occurring in the spectrum of invisible light, intercepting maritime and air-traffic broadcasts as a sound installation along with a visualization of air traffic entering Goan airspace, by decoding aircraft wireless transponder data in realtime.
Traffic explores the politics of invisible light in the electromagnetic radio frequency spectrum. It is part of an on-going project, Rain Boron, that draws parallels between time synchronized & orchestrated modes of wireless transmissions employed by the human species using the medium of invisible light & that of natural occurring transmissions of celestial events.
