JCSpaceRadio is a mobile, immersive, durational installation that addresses the ongoing inhabitation of transmission frequencies. Our contemporary landscape is inundated with a constant barrage of digital frequencies. Broadcasts from JCSpaceRadio are transmissions of tones attuned to natural bodily frequencies, supplementing depleted alpha, beta, delta, and theta wave resources.
Facilitated by Christine Shallenberg in Chicago and Jenn Cooper in Thailand, “Ritual Through Diaspora” is a physical exploration of resonances of tranquility. Traveling trunks will expand to create a space for an intimate ritual gathering that engages with bodies scattered from their original homelands. A live radio broadcast will accompany the Chicago presentation and may be accessed by individuals in the vicinity. Tonal broadcasts will be body-based and will focus on the frequencies of organs.
Mobile Participatory Installation (2nd Edition) \\ TRITRIANGLE, 1550 N. Milwaukee Ave. 3rd Floor \\ Doors: 5:30 PM; Performance: 6:00-7:00 PM
There is a $5-10 suggested donation for this event.
