neuroTransmitter (Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere) have engaged in an artistic practice that focuses on architectures of broadcast, the particularities of historical resistant moments associated with the medium of radio, the re-articulation of radio programming, and the radio ‘voice’. Specific interests lie in the archeology of the medium’s history, the study of its architectural residues and monuments, and in considering new possibilities for the broadcast spectrum as discursive public space.
