Bus Projects, Melbourne.

A performance using a custom built crystal radio at a high voltage marker on the bank of the River Derwent, Tasmania. A ritual performed at dawn and dusk, for no audience, other than dog walkers and videoed by the artist. The performance was then projected into the Bus Projects space, where the crystal radio box was also installed and left to make electromagnetic sound of its own divination throughout the exhibition period.

The exhibition was opened with an activation performance with Papaphilia.

This was the first a series of three performances using this crystal radio box.
