The Plasma Wave instrument : Airtime

"The Plasma Wave Instrument" is a work that explores the in-between space of matter both as a real world phenomenon and as an imaginary rendering via a computer generated sequence.

At the centre of this work is a photo voltaic high voltage generator that transforms sunlight into plasma. Here air in its fourth phase travels faster than the speed of sound, literally burning the air.

The mechanism that facilitates this is based on modified television technology, instead of presenting coherent television pictures on a phosphor screen the acceleration produces light and radio waves orchestrated by the photo-voltaic exchange in the silicon.
