radio books


radio books was an audio installation located throughout the grounds of art|DBF in Decatur, GA. The books, crime thrillers mainly and one by Rush Limbaugh, now devoid of text, contained radios in place of their printed pages. Rather than encountering a voice over the radio, either playing out a radio drama or narrating a text, the listener confronts an empty narrative, the only sounds of which are unseen flipping pages.

radio books was presented by Eyedrum Art & Music Gallery for art|DBF of the Decatur Book Festival in Decatur, GA from August 30-31, 2015.
