Here are some photos I took from Mellom himmel og hav, International performance festival, Herdla, Askøy; Norway, August 2008. The festival took place on a ex-military base from WWII, home to a German airbase, and while this was evident in some of the performances, it was difficult to find a connection to the historical context in others.

The last photo in this series is an antenna I spotted during the festival. I am investigating the aesthetics of transmitters and receivers that increasingly pop up in the environment, as well as those that have become redundant.
This activity is related to my current work-in-progress, the Electromagnetic Fountain – a portable fountain that dances to the “sound” of electromagnetic waves detected in its near vicinity.
