Concordia transmission artist Amanda Dawn Christie will use the world’s most capable high-power, high-frequency transmitter HAARP in Alaska to send art around the world and into outer space using Slow Scan TV
From the shadow of Mount Sanford, surrounded by Alaskan wilderness, is the most powerful radio transmitter on earth. A unique tool called the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI) to create radio-induced aurora, also known as airglow. But it’s never been used by a Canadian artist to transmit art — until now.
The IRI’s human-made northern lights inspired interdisciplinary artist Amanda Dawn Christie to create Ghosts in the Air Glow: an upcoming transmission art project that will use the IRI to play with the liminal boundaries of outer space.
She will be embedding her own encoded SSTV images, audio compositions and propagation tests into IRI experiments from 25th to 28th March 2019.
