Tree Radio at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

tree radio 1 magz Hall

Sound and radio artist Magz Hall joined YSP for a residency over summer 2015. Magz’s exploration of the artistic potential of radio, outside of conventional settings, has seen her turn ceramic pots, books and now trees in the YSP grounds into radio transmitters. Powered by solar energy, the trees create their own micro FM station, broadcasting a radio wave translation of biological processes and reactions to the environment.

Join Magz for a guided tour of the tree radios and a talk about her practice. Sat 29th August at 13:45
