'greyfields' is an ongoing audio-visual project investigating the psychogeography of commercial environments.
This latest iteration focuses on capturing - via specially-constructed induction microphones - the electro-magnetic spectra emitted by the informational, security, communication and power infrastructures which pervade the urban grid.
'greyfields/wavefields' seeks to render that which is invisible, inaudible, hidden yet omnipresent, into something which can be contemplated. We are aware of these systems which infuse the physical structures of our metropolis, yet their ephemerality leads us to disregard the vastness, power (and related health implications) of their existence.
They are, in many respects, a kind of urban ghost, clustering in and haunting our centres of financial and political dominance.
