Name: Apologia of Despair

Author: Jēkabs Voļatovskis

Technology: sound sculptures (metal, radio receiver, radio transmitter)

Collection: RIXC

Year: 2019

Description: Three sound emitting steel spirals, which act as antennas that receive blank radio broadcasts (ie, interference), play back the captured sound while receiving beats of vibration speakers. Creating an opportunity to experience something that is not normally available to man, we look beyond this narrow audibility corridor while marking the limits of the modest potential with which we are endowed by nature for its exploration.
