How can we perceive electromagnetic fields in, around and within our domestic sphere?
On the occasion of Narrative Machines: Notes on the Endotic, initiated by artist and curator Lorenzo Sandoval, the idea of induction conformed the basis of this conception. Electrotron proposes a sound walkthrough that allows to perceive current effects of copper conductivity as an invisible electromagnetic architecture in everyday domestic urban spaces.
Electrotron is composed by a former GDR telephone handle, modified to detect voltage potential objects through induction waves. The built-in microphone and speaker of the handle serve as a detector and sound emitting accordingly, reacting as we move around electric-charged appliances and bodies.
