Using simple antennas and an op-amp circuit, these works pick up the radio-waves sent between cell towers and our phones, to trigger LED lights embedded in the works. These frequencies are the same ones that cause a snapping and crackling noise when phones are plugged into speakers and receive or send a text message.

These minimal, post-apocalyptic landscapes embedded with cellphone respondent light, draw connections between the social and political impact of technology on modern society - drawing their titles from the time stamps of tweets.
