non-attachment to the ground

live radio and scent transmission


non attachment to the ground is a promiscuous transmission in an extended moment of transition and cautious optimism to the bedrock beneath Chicago.

Radius Episode 73 was installed, broadcast, and recorded live at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Greenhouse and Plant Research Laboratory on Sunday May 1, 2016 at 5:30am CST in partnership with SoundCamp / REVEIL, a 24-hour radio broadcast that tracks the sunrise around the globe; and Uptool, a programming series that highlights the work of cultural producers who find themselves engaging the edges of anthropology, ecology, and the arts.

Episode 73 is the first Episode of GROUND. GROUND is a three-part, site-specific commissioned radio series that focuses on radio’s direct physical connection to the Earth.

With scent design by Joey Asal.
