the remediated wall was installed at the Urban Arts Space in Columbus, Ohio, from April 21 thrugh May 20, 2010.
An induction coil antenna is suspended from the ceiling, listening to Extremely Low Frequency electromagnetic vibrations. This signal is analyzed by a computer for fluctuating patterns. These patterns, identified as the Schumann Resonances, are then used to modulate the vibrations of the gallery wall using a tactile transducer.
The installation materials consist of a 7-foot long induction coil antenna, a computer control station, an amplified tactile transducer installed inside the gallery wall, and your personal cell phone.
The induction coil is made of laminated steel, a custom borosilicate glass coil former, and 20 lbs. of enameled copper wire coiled onto the glass coil former, consisting of approximately 60,000 wraps.
The analyzed frequency data was broadcasted via the internet utilizing pachube, a realtime data brokerage platform, where it was both stored and made freely available for use.
