...installation at 'Ringworm' open home Christmas show, Wellington

Wellington based curator Melanie Oliver organised a small group show in her house, a big multi-person flat on a hill whose windows overlook the sea and the wide horizon, which are both such iconic features of that cityscape, as an open home Christmas exhibition. When radio cegeste was invited to participate, I gathered some location recordings from around the long meandering stretch of the Wellington waterfront, and broadcast the sounds of the ocean on the day of the show to the radio used domestically within the house (in the kitchen), as well as a small transistor I placed in the bathroom.

many thanks to Ann Shelton for the wave-cactus-transmitter photo, and to Melanie Oliver for the others. Melanie archived the show on her blog for posterity here
