Part of NAISA’s Annual Deep Wireless Festival of Radio and Transmission Art!

Grounding electronic and technological materials in nature, the EMF Turtable is an interactive sound sculpture by Shaughn Martel that amplifies the electromagnetic fields generated by mobile phones and other small electronic devices.

By pushing the electromagnetic emissions of these devices into the human hearing range the flow of electricity between the components and data transfer between them generates a droning static sound. By spinning the turntable and using the touch screens, visitors can modify the waveform of the electromagnetic field and the resulting sound material of the EMF Turntable. The sculpture was created initially as an instrument to strip the social associations of small consumer electronic devices; to understand them instead as tone generating machines as part of a manual analog instrument.

Dates and Hours – February 3 – April 4, 2022, Thursday to Monday, 10am – 4pm
