The GRIDS series consists of four mobile commissioned radio broadcasts at four different Chicago geographical locations throughout the 2014 calendar year. The transmissions occurred at either working or now defunct electrical production or distribution centers. Using a low-power FM transmitter – the Audio Relay Unit – that can be powered by solar panels, the broadcasts specifically addressed how energy is produced, distributed, and consumed in the event of radio broadcast. Radius has previously supported and broadcast audio work that makes inaudible energy fields audible. GRIDS continues to investigate the sonic qualities of electromagnetic energy and specific sites that produce this energy.
