The Ghost in the Kitchen / Olga Massanet

Convenience culture has obscured our relationship with nature and eased us into a state of disconnection from the universe. Yet our most intimate spaces – our kitchens, our bedrooms, our bodily cavities – are invisibly permeated by the ripple effects of violent solar explosions.

Using a custom-made VLF antenna and a bunch of repurposed lines of code, The Ghost in the Kitchen invited participants to tune into the slow waves of ionisation that solar radiation causes in our atmosphere.
