local radio 'grounding'
local radio, 'grounding', Space-Time: Convention T, Wysing Arts Centre annual festival, 31st August 2013.

Site-specific sound and visual installation created at Wysing Arts Centre for Space-Time: Convention T festival. The work is a response to the festival's themes of hidden structures and systems and theories of truth. The title refers to the 'symbol grounding' problem in cognitive science, which asks how symbolic systems can gain intrinsic meaning through being 'grounded' in sensory categories.

Buried transmitters transmit sonically encoded symbolic formulae to radios roughly wired into the trees. FM signals were transmitted using Raspberry Pi and consumer short-range FM transmitters.
