Description

Radius Library will be in residence in the Special Collections Reading Room from November 13th - 30th. 

Radius is an experimental radio broadcast platform based in Chicago. It features a new project monthly with statements by artists who use radio as a primary element in their work. Radius provides artists with live and experimental formats in radio programming. The goal is to support work that engages the tonal and public spaces of the electromagnetic spectrum. All audio works are broadcasted locally on 88.9-FM with a secondary stream online at theradius.us.

Episode 45: Alyssa Moxley
For Infinity = Zero, Alyssa Moxley produces the conditions for radio listeners to derive meaning from senseless cacophonies as they walk the halls and navigate obscure corners, stairwells, and archives of 37 South Wabash, Chicago. Flaxman Library Special Collections hosts this live, participatory radio work inspired by Jorge Luis Borges' story The Library of Babel, where the world is made up of an infinite network of hexagonal libraries in which librarians quest for a library containing books of small format, illustrated, magical, and containing revelatory insight.

Rebroadcasts will take place on 11/20 and 11/25.
