Polish artist Katarzyna Krakowiak becomes a “human antenna” on the roof of the Kumu Museum. During an hour-long performance on 12 May 2011 in Tallinn, she sets about “transmitting silence.” But it is not very quiet when she uses her transmitters – camouflaged by a cheap supermarket shopping bag – to broadcast her own radio program over all analogue receivers in the area.
