Carrier/Container/Detektor aims to break open the closed ecological circuit of material broadcast media by focusing attention on the means of reception and environmental conditions that affect both analogue and digital transmission, rather than on any extracted content within the broadcast message itself. Howse presents a series of test or
measurement signals broadcast at predicted times of higher geophysical interference which could reasonably affect the reception of such signals. This allows for a listening in, a decoding and a potential measurement of interference quanta such as solar flares, sunspots, magnetic storms, auroral activity, and meteorological change.
Riding a ghost carrier, and thus acknowledging links with EVP
phenomena within this dark ecological listening action, Carrier/Container/Detektor intentionally and arbitrarily bridges the so-called digital/analogue divide, inserting manipulated reception data of unknown origins within the stock expressive toolkit of chir...
