InterferencesÂ is a series of four broadcasts to take place on each Friday in July 2013. Each broadcast features a geographic site in the Chicago area where some type of built interference in the landscape has or currently is taking place. The content of each broadcast consists of text, maps, photographs, or drawings relating to the site. This content will be in the form of digital files that are subsequently encoded as sound using amateur radio digital modes. Each broadcast will be made on frequencies occupied by licensed commercial stations in Chicago with the intent to interfere with them. Each interference creates a temporary autonomous zone within licensed Hertzian space where the site can assert or advertise elements of its past, present, and future with the same voice as the mass media broadcasts that envelop it.
