Air, Condition at Blaffer Art Museum

Abinadi Meza: Air, Condition opens August 8, 2014 at Blaffer Art Museum's two exhibition spaces in Houston, Texas. In downtown Houston a two-channel video, four-channel sound installation is installed in former storefront windows at 110 Milam Street. At the Blaffer Museum's main gallery a four-channel sound installation activates windows of the architecture itself.

This project is based on a pirate radio transmissions that explore and intervene in urban space - specifically, the territory of air-space. The broadcasts are transmitted from a moving car, and create temporary glitches in sonic and living space.
