GX Jupitter-Larsen is currently based in Los Angeles. Since 1979, he has worked as a performance artist, sound artist, writer, and filmmaker. He also collects stamps, and is a devout psammologist. Writes Jupitter-Larsen "Some of my broadcasts have consisted of me slowly pushing live microphones into power grinders. Go ahead, laugh. You know you want to. The idea behind my broadcasts is to keep people guessing; to trick them into thinking. I've done game shows when there should have been news reports. I've done all-night sound sculptures that lasted six hours non-stop. After all, Kettleday greetings can happen any time of the year. Since 1983, I have done over 3,500 hours of live radio art on 31 different stations in 11 countries. No matter how short the distance, you can always divide it further in half. And that's the entropy of travel. No matter how far you've gone, you're only ever half way there. Call it the success of failure if you like; because sometimes close can be more than enough."
