Portfolio > BEACON (2014)

BEACON is an extension of McCormack’s exploration of short-wave radio and it’s role as a diplomatic means of communication. For the duration of the Carnival Art Crawl, McCormack will work with HAM radio operators who translate festival participants’ live txt messagess into morse code. The morse code will illuminate Signal Hill through a synchronized lighting system, binding social media to a landscape affiliated as a historical cornerstone for unfiltered global communicative media.
