Here are some images of the recent transmission of the Sonic Deep Map that Radio Aktiv (Bonnie Fortune, Antye Greie-Ripatti, Brett Bloom) made.  It was made to continue our support of people, like Pro Hanhikivi, who are fighting to stop the building of an unnecessary and unneeded nuclear power plant in Pyhäjoki, Finland.  The transmission was organized by Radius as a part of their GRIDS series where artists address issues related to Chicago’s power grid. The transmission site for the Sonic Deep Map was the Smart Museum of Art. The intended landscape of the transmission was the University of Chicago campus, primarily the Enrico Fermi labs, the site of the first self-sustaining nuclear reaction, the celebrated experiments that unleashed untold devastation, destruction and future hardship.

The images were all taken by Radius. We will post the full audio of the program once Radius makes it publicly available.
