Sint-Annefontein, Park van Laken, BXL
13 february 2pm
Near the fountain of Saint Anne, join in the ongoing experimentations with your headphones and portable radios on the hertzian frequency of 88.6 Mhz FM. To teleport yourself, settle near a water source with a pair of headphones and a phone connected on https://p-node.org to create a network of fountain radios.
Please stay discrete - do respect COVID protocols and keep a wave distance from each other - in "line of sight".

BNA-BBOT vitrine # 5
119 Rue de Laeken, B-1000 Bruxelles
mi-novembre 2020 - mi-février 2021
The installation in the BNA_BBOT window is a test scenario in which Brussels fountains are used as radio transmitters and receivers. If you take a pump and salt water and the water shoots up to a certain height into the air, the fountain can become an antenna to transmit images (SSTV) and sound (FM), hence messages. Tune in to 108 FM or install a SSTV demodulator. No piracy but an act of 'empowerment' in the electromagnetic spectrum as commons.
We want to receive your recordings of fountains & antenna's & waves to complete the bna-bot soundmap We also collect pictures of antenna's in your neighbourhood". Send to anyATbna-bbot.be

In this schoolkids workshop, we work with copper wire and our own antennas, which we connect with a self-built high-sensitivity mini amplifier prototyped by Claire williams We use our antennas to search for the hidden waves in CC Berchem and listen to the space around us.

we install, V-2 - a modular system of radio/streaming broadcast, 21 October, 11 am
we gather, 9 november, 7-10pm
a workshop in which we will make wearable antennas by hacking everyday objects with textile techniques. These antennas will be connected to a small circuit that we will build in order to amplify and hear a portion of the electromagnetic activity of our environment.
