yatooの極限まで色彩と影を抑圧した蒸留された

人為的な音の境界線がほどかれた音世界。
その越境した感覚の融合を試みる装置。

鉱石ラジオ:sawako’s petite crystal radio page (2006)
My first encounter with crystal radio was in the early 2000s when a friend introduced me to Kenji Kobayashi’s exhibition. At first, I had no idea what the relationship was between a stone and a radio. But I immediately became fascinated with the idea of using a stone as a radio without batteries to receive radio signals. I started to think, “I hope I can make a work using a crystal radio system in the future…” The chance came in late 2006 when I learned that I had been selected for a commission by Roulette with funds provided by the Jerome Foundation. This led to “ishi ~ listening stone”, my first crystal radio work, which premiered at Roulette in November 2007.
