Lost Lover book is published online and limited print of 100, launch in July 2018 at Vrystaat Arts Festival with a radio walk in the streets of Bloemfontein : A.I.R..
A.I.R. (Altitude Immersive Radio) is a collective slow walk through a city with wind-up radios with balloons as antennas to create a cloud of transmission, a forest of voices in the radio wilderness. Participants will receive to their radios a live radio broadcast from local station Kovsie FM, featuring a script inspired by keywords seen in Bloemfontein’s streets and written in collaboration with writers from Tasmania and South Africa. Costume designer Pontsho Disela, who works in Bloemfontein selling “regal African fabric print accessories made for the modern woman who adores herself” will make conductive costumes with local wax fabric, cords and conductive material for the walkers to extend their balloon antennas reception and interfere with each other and electromagnetic fields in the city.
A.I.R. (Altitude Immersive Radio) is a participatory performance in public space taking place in July 2018 at Vrystaat Arts Festival in Bloemfontein, South Africa; supported by the Tasmanian Lab SITUATE Art in Festivals, PIAD (Programme for Innovation in Art-form Development), PAP (Public Art Projects) and Australia Council for the Arts (Emerging and Experimental Arts).
