Raw electromagnetic emissions from the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre in Lugano, Ticino. Per stream, there are 3 amplified pickups plugged into a soundcard and broadcasted without any further processing.
The Radio Wetteralgorithmen is part of the exhibition Wired Nation and is streaming for 6 weeks, from 29.10.20 until 12.12.20.
Behind the availability of digital processes is an infrastructure that is the physical basis for data traffic, calculation, storage, transmission and deletion of digital data. The result is a widely ramified matrix in which economic and political interests unfold. Using Switzerland as an example, the exhibition takes exemplary soundings in the foundation of a networked nation. Using current and historical case studies, it examines the organisation, control and management of processes in digital Switzerland. It gives an impression of how local, regional and global interests are intertwined and how these are inscribed in landscapes, architecture and infrastructure.
