Summary

Celestial Radio (Night) Zoe Walker & Neil Bromwich

These prints provide a photographic record of the artist’s independent radio station which broadcast from a glitter ball yacht along the Essex coastline in 2004. The station played 1970's progressive rock for 25 days alongside discussions on topical issues relevant to the scientific and spiritual localities around the ship – for example Bradwell nuclear power station and St Peter’s Chapel. This work explores personal desires to find the ideal place and the impossibility of finding that location
