Satellite Séance : a performance involving gesture, live electromagnetic experimentation and decoding images of weather systems via transmissions from polar-orbiting NOAA satellites. Materials include a Turnstile Antenna, Funcube Dongle Pro +, SDR# and WXtoImg software. Performed on 12th July 2019 in the shadow of the GCHQ operated “Listening Station” in Bude, Cornwall, where civilian data is captured and stored through internet probes, and the NSA-GCHQ collaborative interception of satellite downlinks over the Atlantic; Photography by Matthew Philips

Lore of the Radio Fossil : a text and ongoing collaboration between Sophie Dyer and Sasha Engelmann. The essay tells the speculative story of a ‘radio fossil’: a radio-borne image that traverses the bounds of Earth’s surfaces, elements, atmospheres and techno-geographies. The story itself is a technique for attuning to a parallel wireless world, an electromagnetic commons, in the aim of witnessing the radio Anthropocene.
