wilderness info network (2006)


A backcountry sound art installation/exhibition at Hartwick College’s Pine Lake Environmental Campus. Curated by ecoarttech, 2006. This project established a sonic field of information produced with renewable energy, digital technologies, and ecological imagination. A solar-powered series of audio transmissions were located in the backcountry of 940 acres in the upper Catskills of New York State. Visitors and hikers to the back woods location used 802.11 wireless devices, Bluetooth-enabled devices, and transistor radios to receive sonic information through digital downloads, and radio transmissions.
