A radio-transmission apparatus presented as an interactive installation. The apparatuses serve as an intimate meeting point for gallery visitors to explore sensations of touch and feedback – when two people sit or stand on the platforms their bodies become enmeshed in the the radio-fields generated by the apparatuses. The disturbances their bodies cause within the fields causes audible feedback loops to emerge in the space, turning the visitors into human instruments. Visitors are asked to remove their shoes so as not to damage the platforms.
