Vera Wyse Munro’s crystal radio set replica

10/14/2016 | watch

Celeste Oram demonstrates her crystal radio set replicated from Vera Wyse Munro’s designs in mid-20th-century New Zealand. The mechanism of copper wires and glass beer bottles is part of her performance at Radius Gallery, Santa Cruz, on October 29, 2016. Five of these radios will be set up in the gallery, as the entire performance will take place over low-power radio transmitters. Audience members are invited to bring their own radios with headphones to surf the performance on-air themselves!
