‘Admiraal van Delfshaven the 1st’ is a wearable Antenna receiver which picks up different invisible phenomena from its surroundings
and makes them audible through electronic sound.
The shipmast-inspired construction is entirely built from materials found in Rotterdam Harbour.
The un-/foldable wooden beams serve as platforms for a selection of receivers which have different configurations to convert electromagnetic fields and wind energy into sound. The picked up signals vary in the range of maritime and aviation communication frequency bands as well as urban- and naturally generated signals of the environment.
The signals of the specific location, modulated by the wearer through operating different mechanisms of the costume,
each time result in a unique composition.
‘Admiraal van Delfshaven the 1st’ is part of the series of pieces developed in The Netherlands.
