Frequency consists in a patchwork of 12 screens recovered from analogue television sets. The artist has recovered the metal meshes within television sets that are bombarded with the cathode ray, and onto which the visual content is formed. Frequency attempts to reignite life back into these old screens, by projecting onto the television screens images of white noise and test charts, images that conjure a time before 24/7 television broadcasting. These screens seem to have lost their ability to tune into their signal, unable to decipher an alien code whose meaning is perhaps forever lost.
