AMPMFM

AMPMFM is the world's first completely public radio – a radio transmitter placed in public space, for everyone to use. The project, which was my graduation assigmnent at WSoC, was based on a simple question that has always interested me – how can I invite people to become more involved in their surroundings?

I always got fascinated by listening to the casual conversations between people in public, so I went collecting them with my sound recorder. After hiding the recorder in the men's shower of a public bath, one of the conversations especially tickled my interest.

Wits End Discography

Siste Sukk tapes & records is a small oslo-based independent label focusing on emo and hardcore, releasing most of their music on tape. When we made the cassette-cover for Wits End's latest release, we wanted to let an unconventional use of material play a major role in the design.

InMono, public sound amplifier

InMono is a small sound-amplifier generating soundwaves from vibrations naturally occuring in public objects. The project aims to let people tune into their surroundings in a new way. Insert headphones and listen!
