Listening Space by Afroditi Psarra & Audrey Briot

Listening Space is an artistic research that was born during the eTextile Spring Break camp event that took place in upstate New York at the beginning of April 2019. Following their previous explorations of ecologies of transmissions and wanting to experiment with Software-Defined Radio, Afroditi Psarra and Audrey Briot setup a DIY satellite tracking station and aimed at intercepting the NOAA weather satellite audiovisual transmissions. During the course of three days, they observed five satellite passes, intercepted successfully three transmissions and decoded the audio signals into images which they later knitted in order to create a textile archive of the transmissions. The project recently won the Bergstrom Art & Science Award at the University of Washington and will be developed further in the course of the next academic year 2019/20.
