Inside the Out, Erin Sexton (2016)
a site-specific installation
with radio, sound, rope, tarp, foam, electronics
We are immersed in radio noise, which contains traces of cosmic events since the big bang. Everyday materials, spatial intervention, and amateur radio technology are used to explore this immediate fact.

DESTROY VANCOUVER (DV) is an experimental music and sound art series curated by John Brennan and Elisa Ferrari. Coalescing around improvised forms of music and sound art, DV combines a broad range of experimental music genres and sound art aesthetics and brings together international improvisers with local and national sound artists and avant-garde musicians.
ERIN SEXTON is a Canadian artist who grows crystals, builds antennas, and observes events. Her installations and performances are playfully minimal, exploring how we experience matter and space-time. She works with knots, electromagnetics, site, sound, and various physical processes. Her research delves into the origin of the universe, energy politics, neomaterialist philosophy, technological infrastructure, quantum paradox, and the history of science. She also tries to communicate with non-humans and understand their experience. Sexton is a licensed amateur radio operator (VE2SXN) currently studying at KHiB in Bergen, Norway, while transmitting and exhibiting her work internationally.
