press release

The wireless spectrum is being used (and regulated) today for rapidly expanding applications. As the commercial uses for wireless technologies multiply, there is a parallel momentum of artists considering the same media for creative expression. Airborne, the second in the museum's Transmission series, profiles exciting new projects by New York-based artists who investigate the aesthetic, sonic, and socio-political aspects of the wireless spectrum.

Selected from an open call, artists 31 Down, Mendi+Keith Obadike, LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus), Melissa Dubbin and Aaron Davidson, neuroTransmitter, Paul Davies, and Tarikh Korula expose the otherwise fleeting and invisible airwaves in everyday life through conceptual projects, networked installations, live streams and audio-visual works.

Airborne is organized by Anne Barlow and Defne Ayas in collaboration with free103point9, a non-profit media arts organization focused on establishing and cultivating the genre Transmission Arts by promoting artists who explore ideas around transmission as a medium for creative expression. The New Museum’s Transmission series profiles artists and scholars working with the concept of "transmission" in the areas of new media, radio, sound, generative audio, and a vast array of broadcast media.
