BLACKBODY, WHITE NOISE

BLACKBODY, WHITE NOISE is an experimental noise radio art composition using two vacant structures and sound reproduction technology. Each structure will bear a single hole allowing sunlight to penetrate and reflect throughout the interior space. During the course of the residency records of temperature, movement and shape will be documented. The collected data will compose a sonic relationship with excerpts from Frantz Fanon’s highly acclaimed literary work, “Black Skin, White Mask.” This project sets out to suggest and translate a correlation between the life of the Sun and struggles against the age of enlightenment and environmental racism. Sounds selected will portray a common ancient narrative and a new future, solar language.
