Electric Chair

Electric Chair from artist1066 on Vimeo.

This is a movie clip of a radio antennae, which is a chair covered in copper wire. This started life as an exploration into testing methodologies for my PhD, but the concept is multi layered taking in references from religious witch-hunts, gendered science, electromagnetic ghosts and Scottish offshore life. The audio is a separate recording of electromagnetic noise that in some parts sounds like water.

This clip is a precursor of a larger documentary-style film with a working title of Radio Woman, which follows a woman's quest to pick up a radio signal. The film will be based in isolated North-West Scotland and take for its influences films such as Breaking the Waves and The Wicker Man.
