Radio waves are passing through you right now, whether you like it or not (sorry).Â Some areÂ generated by distant stars; othersÂ emanate from a nearby cell phone. And, of course, there areÂ all those peskyÂ radio stations.
It’s an unseen yet significant part of Houston’s landscape.
Capturing that landscape is the goal of a new two-part exhibition by artist and University of Houston professorÂ Abinadi Meza, called “Air, Condition“Â (that’s not a typo;Â thereâs a comma between those two words).
One part of the installation is sound only â thatâs at theÂ Blaffer Art MuseumÂ on the UH campus.Â The other is a video installation on the side of a building downtown.Â Houston Matters’ Michael Hagerty has more details.
