Phantom Radio — Ine Meganck & guests
In the nearby future, the ephemeral space between 88 and 108 MHz will become vacant due to the shift towards digital radio. Phantom Radio wants to research new artistic interpretations of this mental and physical space. How can (graphic) designers use this unconventional place? Parasitic and hyperlocal use of this privatized space makes it possible to escape the legal limitations of the medium. How can these restrictions further strengthen creativity and production? How do you create visibility where there is nothing to see? Phantom Radio wants to become an extension of the schools invisible work and exhibition infrastructure.
Tune in for this narrowcasting radio show by the graphic design students of BA2. Guided by Andrea di Serego Alighieri & Ine Meganck.
