The YOU! Signal

The YOU! Signal is a performative installation that acts as a temporary space center, made by Kollaboratoriet and By Proxy.  It invites its visitors to send a message to the universe by being guided through a reception, an office, a space for contemplation before reaching the radio room with a radio transmitter. The signal is transmitted by a large antenna mounted at the roof of the building, sending the message out to travel through the infinite space for eternity. The installation was open at Kunsthall Grenland during this years PIT (Porsgrunn International Theatre Festival).
