881 Radio
FM radio, performance
2010 - 2013

881 Radio was a long term project aimed at using the form of pirate radio broadcasting as a platform for performance art and local community building. From 2010 - 2013 this clandestine, weekly FM radio broadcast offered a free form space for performance to students at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, local residents and community members. The content, location, and timing of the station’s broadcasts shifted constantly in an effort to highlight the project’s focus on the uncertain translation of visual to audio communication as well as the message-in-a-bottle quality of radio broadcasting.
