In Antenna, Floris Vanhoof continues to investigate the effects of randomness. Here, a grand piano has been set on its long edge as if it has tripped sideways, rendering it unplayable in the traditional way. Instead, a vast hexagonal aerial strung with fine wires protrudes from what is now its uppermost surface. As this hypersensitive antenna picks up electromagnetic waves – emanating from shifts in weather, distant traffic, our phones – it converts these invisible frequencies into movements that vibrate and pluck the piano’s strings, generating haunting chance harmonics.
