Armour Yards. Atlanta, GA, USA
On November 19 2016 I entered Meredith Kooi’s The Bucky Dome Zone, at Armour Yards during NINE, the annual exhibition for The Creatives Project. During this performance-interview, I told Meredith Kooi more about my research and music. Enter the Bucky Dome Zone was a temporary communication platform open to the public, that constructs radio as participatory shared space. The dome served as a research and broadcast facility that houses resources for research, broadcasting, and sound-making.
You can hear my full performance-interview with Meredith here.
Buckminster Fuller (1895 – 1983), nicknamed Bucky, was many things: an inventor, architect, designer, author. One of his best-known designs is the geodesic dome, the goal of which is to provide efficient and structurally sound shelter. Mark Wigley writes in his book Buckminster Fuller Inc.: Architecture in the Age of Radio that the “defining characteristic of radio is its disinterest in objects. It literally passes right through them. Yet the objects around are located, marked, connected, exposed, infiltrated, monitored, reorganized, promoted, locked, archived, protected, dissolved, and even destroyed in the space of radio signals” (2015, 14). The structure of ENTER THE BUCKY DOME ZONE is contained yet open, allowing for simultaneous incubation and circulation of ideas.(source: Meredith Kooi )
