RISING

RISING is a radio installation for Moon rising signals by Sisters Akousmatica, a collaborative and expanded radio project of Julia Drouhin and Phillipa Stafford. 
They use radios as instruments, stitch collective conductive maps of female sound makers, built FM, crystal and dress transmitters with kids and adults, speak two languages and light Morse code between their houses. 
RISING is an exploration of invisible communication signals based on EME (Earth-Moon-Earth) to sing loud with the stellar wind, feet in the ground of sand and ears in the ocean of air.

RISING is a finalist work of 25 on 185 entries for the Women’s Arts Prize Tasmania 2019, a touring exhibition in 3 art centers.
