Against All Suns at U Houston

I will be giving a presentation and Q&A as part of the series Against All Suns sponsored by the Desert Unit for Speculative Territories and the Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts Interdisciplinary Initiatives at University of Houston.

Tuesday March 20, 2018 at 6:30pm at the University of Houston, Fine Arts Building- Room 110

The presentation is entitled Sound Signal Conductor, and here’s what it’s all about:

Consider transmission art as occupying ‘radio space’: continuous, available, fluctuating transmission ecologies, described by the reach of signals within overlapping fields of influence and the space of imagination such invisible territories enable. The extrasensory nature of radio space, taken together with acousmatic explorations of geological and political landscapes, allows for a productive slippage between real material signals and sounds and imaginary spaces. Friz will discuss solo and collaborative installation and durational performance works which broadly engage both critical physical and radiophonic spaces: from the intimacy and distance of radio beacons, to the naturalization and pervasiveness of military practices into contemporary civil communications (such as drone technology, or the atomic clock), to the radial logics of expanding urban and industrial infrastructures.
