Radio Espacio Estación at HmongTown Marketplace. Day 2.
At times where space is limited and the sustainable uses of materials and outlets for community are required REE creates a network of geographically remote nodes. The airwaves are available spaces; this spaces now will be activated and become places where the imaginary and the real merge.
REE is an online nomadic bilingual radio transmission that aims at building relationships within communities by exploring connections between creative process and everyday cultural experiences. Its programming is based on site specific narratives, dialogues and story telling.
REE focuses on transmission as a mode for expression and exchange investigating the relationships with sound and its communicative value. A platform exploring ways for language learning replacing translation with integration. Its democratic format engages discussions of ideas, social and cultural issues. Interactions with the general public encourages active listening and social involvement. Each show is broadcasted live and archived online. This is a time and site specific project.
