Signal Culture Residency
One week of intense development for Roll Call exhibition
Jenn and Christine traveled to Owego, NY between June 8 - 15, 2018 to live and work at Signal Culture.
While in residence, they completed nearly 3 dozen Processing Sketches for the Raspberry Pi. These sketches utilize a Microsoft Kinect as the primary source of data input, resulting in a variety of visual outputs generated from direct interaction with the units.
This work was featured as part of the Roll Call series, Indianapolis, IN, July 2018. Additional sketches developed at Signal Culture were featured visuals at the 2018 DAD Festival, Louder House, Chicago, IL, June 2018.

Scottsblulff, NE: Join Chicago based JCSpaceRadio for a week-long series of encounters that will leave you with an out of this world experience! Three unique opportunities hosted in the Bronson Gallery at the West Nebraska Arts Center will offer direct participant engagement through Frequency Workouts and Sonic Labs, allowing for personal attunement to body-based frequencies.
Frequency Workouts are a movement-based, dance related, class where participants use tones and rhythms to create unique physical responses in a facilitated environment. No prior dance or movement experience necessary.
Sonic Labs are a conversation based, community-centered experience of saturating in and responding to body-resonating frequencies, allowing for natural attunement of major body systems.
Drop-ins are welcome and there will be a $10 suggested donation for each class and/or a $15.00 donation for a series pass.
THIS IS AN ALL AGES EVENT!
Frequency Workout Class
Join us for a body-based exploration of tones and frequencies developed by JCSpaceRadio. This 1.5 hour class will consist of guided movement exercises, improvisations, and conversations to develop vocabularies, textures, and processes applicable to creative practice, performance, and healing arts. This class is open to anyone and no prior dance experience is required.
$10 suggested donation

We want you to celebrate with us knowing exactly where your financial contributions are going, because your support is more important now than ever.
Over the next year, we will be investing in infrastructure that will complete part of our primary mission - building a 2-meter shortwave ham radio. We are also seeking funding to provide sponsorship for our DIY workshop participants, making information and conversation accessible to underprivileged communities. In addition, this August during the total solar eclipse, we will be in Western Nebraska producing a week long series of events.
We look forward to sharing more information about our upcoming initiatives as part of the Dinner Lab experience!
Can't make it? Another way to participate is to make a donation to JCSpaceRadio to help us keep supporting the artists that experiment, create, and collaborate in our wonderful home.
