site/sound performance intervention

Using a pair of open electromagnetic amplifier circuits, Sexton explores sites with historical, mystical, and energetic significance, tuning into frequencies both modern and mysterious. Her own body's electromagnetic field interacts with that of the site, amplifying signals like an antenna through contact with the circuit, becoming a medium for the sonification of waves and feedback.
