I invite you to check out audio and image samples from a work-in-progress, entitled Letter Beacon featured in the excellent online journal .dpi Feminist Journal of Art and Digital Culture .

The audio features some of my recent works with distorted recordings of voices from micro cassette tapes and shortwave radio, among other sound textures. The images are from projected layered 35 mm slides from found images circa post WW II America. The samples are here:
