Art Basel Miami Beach 2008
curated by: Alanna Heiss
Alanna Heis asked Federico Díaz to create the installation Ultra for the presentation P.S.1 at Art Basel Miami in 2008. It represents specific futuristic immersive environment in which the Art Basel visitors can move freely and use it for relaxation or listening to the Art Radio International WPS1 which airs coverage of the fair in this location. The radio, as a typical sound medium, served as a starting ideological point of the installation that converts the sound in material spatial architecture, again on the basis of element transformation. The radio station literally spreads tsunami of materialised sound, so-called white noise, therefore a signal bearing equal share of all frequencies of audible spectrum.
